Markku Rummukainen, professor at CEC and the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, was interviewed in several media channels about the latest report from the UN’s climate panel, IPCC. “The report provides a focused examination of climate change and its impact on oceans, sea ice, glaciers, snow cover, permafrost, land ice and the many unique species, habitats and human activities that are affected, which has a considerable significance for climate management in the world”, says Rummukainen.

Cecilia Akselsson, senior lecturer at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, was interviewed in Skogen magazine. The interview was about the possibility of increasing forestry production while also achieving the environmental and sustainability targets decided on by the Swedish parliament. Akselsson says, among other things, that there is a need for a holistic view at province level and that researchers from different disciplines need to cooperate.

Petter Öhrn, project assistant at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, was interviewed about his research on how spruces defend themselves against European spruce bark beetles. He said, among other things, that damage to spruces is more extensive if their resistance is diminished due to stress.  

Frans-Jan Parmentier, researcher at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, was interviewed about his climate research as well as the latest report from the UN’s climate panel, IPCC. “What we are now seeing is reduced sea ice, shrinking glaciers, thinner snow cover, thawing permafrost, more melt water that discharges into the sea, higher sea levels, warmer oceans and changing marine ecosystems”, he says.
