A 16-year record (2002–2017) of permafrost, active-layer, and meteorological conditions at the Samoylov Island Arctic permafrost research site, Lena River delta, northern Siberia was just published in Earth System Science Data. The long-term observational data is complemented by high-resolution topographic data acquired by terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) in 2017, when the 3DGeo Research Group joined [...]

In September 2017, the 3D Spatial Data Processing Group (3DGeo) joined the German-Russian expedition of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) for Polar and Marine Research to the Arctic research station Samoylov (N 72°22’, E 126°29’) in the central Lena Delta.
Under the lead of Julia Boike, the research team maintained and expanded long-term monitoring stations and [...]

The third arctic expedition to Trail Valley, located about 50 km north of Inuvik, NWT, Canada, concludes the field work within the PermaSAR project. Sabrina Marx, Katharina Anders (both: LiDAR Research Group, Heidelberg University) and Julia Boike (Alfred Wegener Institute, Potsdam) stayed a week in the research camp. We were not only able to acquire [...]

Mid of October Inga Beck was invited by a local primary school to talk about her research and to give the students an impression about the work of a Polar Researcher. The entire school (around 200 children and 15 teachers) gathered in the assembly hall of the school and listened carefully to the presentation.
Beside the [...]

Mid of August we started for our second field trip in the Canadian Arctic. This time the team consisted of Inga Beck, Sabrina Marx and Detlef May. As Sabrina already joined the trip in June, many things – such as customs, security etc. worked much easier than in June.
We only had very little time for [...]
