Center for Permafrost (CENPERM) > Research


In CENPERM, different scientific disciplines meet as we investigate the biological, geographical and physical effects of permafrost thawing. We combine field experiments in Greenland, Svalbard, northern Sweden and Russia under extreme conditions with experiments under controlled conditions in our laboratories at University of Copenhagen.
