After more than a year work, my latest article has been published this week. Together with the lead author Kamrul Hossain and co-authors Wilfried Greaves, J. Miguel Roncero, and Micheal Sheehan we wrote the article “Constructing Arctic security: An inter-disciplinary approach to understanding security in the Barents Region.” The article will appear in the forthcoming issue of Polar Record, is already available online at: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/polar-record/article/constructing-arctic-security-an-inter-disciplinary-approach-to-understanding-security-in-the-barents-region/061CA9A166131C6C3BC86F03F8EDC9CC
Following the link you will also find the abstract for the paper, which is part of the HuSArctic research project, in which I am currently involved.
A rare experience: In the past years, there was already too much snow for ice skating, once the ice was thick enough to allow to safely move on the lake. This year there was little precipitation yet. Temperatures of below -20°C in the past days where, however, cold enough to provide an ice cover with the thickness that allows to skate over the lake.
