We welcome Alisa Heuchel, who started as the new laboratory manager at Abisko Scientific Research Station on May 15th! In September, Alisa Heichel will defend her doctoral thesis in forest genetics, and even though her work at the station will involve different things, she brings experiences from her research studies.
On April 28th, the icebreaker Oden will depart from a Swedish port for the research expedition called ARTofMELT 2023 in the Arctic Ocean. The researchers will study the arrival of spring in the Arctic and the beginning of the melting season.
