INTPART-AKMA project was funded by Norwegian Research Council (Project number 287869) and led by the UiT - The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in the USA.
As things progressed, we also expanded to include scientists and educators across the world, from South America, Central Asia, Africa and Europe.
Our aim is to advance collective knowledge about methane activity in the seabed, on the seafloor and in the ocean in Arctic regions. The Arctic regions are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate changes, and methane is a highly effective climate changing gas when it reaches the atmosphere.
An interdisciplinary workshop to learn from the ocean, through
multisensory activities and reflections on the role of emotions in
science and law
