Danish Polar Center Publications No. 2, 1997

Climate and Man in the Arctic

Edited by Kirsten Caning, Danish Polar Center.
Danish Polar Center Publications No. 2, 1997    Price: 20 DKK.

From the cover:
"It is essential that we try to understand the nature of climatic change and its effects on man and his environment. Only this way can we hope to be able to predict future changes that may have great consequences for the well-being of northern residents", says the Director of the Danish Polar Center, Morten Meldgaard, in his introduction to this book.
The papers given at the Copenhagen seminar in March 1996 contribute from several scientific angles to this understanding. Claus Andreassen, the Dean of the University of Greenland, Ilisimatusarfik, extends an invitation to all researchers to spend some of their precious research time among the people of Greenland, "thus creating a more balanced view and creative dialoque, and improving mutual respect".
