POLAR2E Newsletter 6 | Summer 2022

Summer has arrived and Newsletter number 6 of POLAR2E reports on the highlights of the last few months within POLAR2E. The University of Lisbon has managed to settle and implement a College in Polar Sciences and Extreme Environments after more than a decade of hard scientific and bureaucratic work, as well as high-level and recognized research in those domains. The achievements of the past ten years are now becoming visible while, at the same time, the impulse towards amplification and innovation keeps growing. POLAR2E is also part of the group of institutions and organizations that put Social, Human and or Political Sciences at the core of the research and debate on fundamental issues that articulate with climate change and ‘climate emergency’ (as claimed by the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres). Prospective integrative research from the Social and the STEM domains seems closer than ever within the College as the need for stronger, integrative, holistic, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary ‘answers’ is growing in demand. There is lots of work to be done and much to improve. However, the number, diversity, interest and quality of outputs and outcomes, as well as of the projects under development allow us to consider that the future of the College is a promise to be cherished.
Opportunities within the field are plenty and the recognition of its relevance is growing worldwide. The preparation of the next Arctic and Antarctic campaigns, the Arctic Circle Conference Assembly, the SCAR Open Science Conference and the ASSW 2023 in Vienna, amongst others, are only a few examples.
The institutional architecture of POLAR2E is settled and stable. The support of both the Scientific and Coordination Board is a guarantee. It is up to all and each member to reach excellence by pursuing Research and communicating Science while respecting the highest international standards.
A final and warm word to our students, in particular to those strongly engaged with the POLAR2E Newsletter: Thank You all!

POLAR2E and the Estrela UNESCO Global Geopark signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the family Pais, owner of the “Casa do Arquiteto” at Lagoa Comprida in Serra da Estrela, aiming at using the infrastructure as a field research station. The station is located at an altitude of 1650 m close to the Lagoa Comprida, in the core of the central plateau of the Serra da Estrela, an area deeply marked by glacial erosion landforms. The landscape is dominated by a knob and basin morphology, with extensive rock outcrops and numerous roches moutonnées and small lakes. It is an area of rich biodiversity, with a complex mosaic of heath scrubs, subalpine grasslands and pond habitats. POLAR2E will be responsible for coordinating the scientific programming of the station, with the Estrela Geopark promoting education and outreach activities. These will be framed within annual planning that should open the facility to the national and international research community. 

Conference: How Arctic Coastal processes are influencing the taste of mangos

Anna Irrgang is a coastal geomorphologist who specialised in Arctic coastal processes. Her passion for Arctic coasts arose from a coincidence, as she ran out of work during her internship about Caribbean Tsunamis at USGS in California. Thus, she got put on the task to classify over 5000 pictures of the Alaskan coast and quickly got fascinated by the high diversity of landscapes and the uniqueness of the Arctic environment. Three years later and by taking many detours, Anna found a way to get to the Arctic with the Geological Survey of Canada and finally saw the coast with her own eyes! For ten years now, she has been investigating how the Arctic coast is changing in response to changing climatic conditions and which consequences these changes have for the human and natural environment. Besides being lead and co-author of several papers on Arctic coastal dynamics, she was recently the lead author of a paper on the drivers, dynamics and impacts of changing Arctic coasts in the journal Nature Reviews in Earth and Environment.
On the 16th of May 2022, Anna Irrgang gave a presentation in the IGOT concerning coastal processes in the Arctic, concluding on how these influence global climate patterns and hence the taste of tropical fruits, from which mangoes were selected as an example. She stated that it is not only Arctic coastal processes that influence mangos, but also that mangos' world trade also influences Arctic coastal processes.

Polardex - The new European Polar infrastructure and logistics platform is now online

Polardex is a new online platform for polar infrastructure and logistics discovery and planning developed by the European Polar Board and EU-PolarNet 2, on which part of the IGOT Zephyrus Polar and Mountain Team participated through the European Polar Infrastructure Database assembly.
Polardex includes detailed information about polar research infrastructure in the Arctic and Antarctic, including field facilities (stations, camps, laboratories, weather stations, shelters), vessels and aircraft. Polardex compiles information on its facilities and capabilities for science, as well as links to further details relating to access, ongoing science and data. It gives details of logistical plans for research in the polar regions, allowing scientists and managers to identify potential collaborations and opportunities for deploying equipment or collecting samples. With Polardex, duplication of logistics can be avoided, saving time, resources and environmental impacts. The Planned Routes section, development of SOOS’ DueSouth database now fully integrated with Polardex, gives details of scientific research cruises as well as tourist routes in the Southern Ocean that could offer ships of opportunity to scientists. Polardex’s functionalities are all for planned routes or field campaigns by sea, land and air in both the Arctic and Antarctic.

PHYTO-UP: Response of two Southern Ocean PHYTOplankton species to climate-driven changes in the Upper-ocean

PHYTO-UP is a one-year project funded by the Portuguese Polar Program (PROPOLAR), led by FCUL (PI: Dr. Ana Brito) and in collaboration with researchers from the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG; Brazil). The focus of PHYTO-UP is to disentangle phytoplankton-specific responses to projected climate-change-driven alterations, providing key information for future accurate predictions or shifts in Antarctic phytoplankton communities, particularly in the Northern Antarctic Peninsula (West Antarctica).

The upper ocean west of the Northern Antarctic Peninsula (NAP) has been in constant change over the past 50 years due to climate change forcing. While most identified changes were linked to environmental conditions, the effects of such changes on the biological communities are complex and still poorly understood, particularly in phytoplankton communities. A decrease in primary productivity in the NAP, as well as changes in community size and composition, have already been detected, including a decrease in the abundance of diatoms and an increase in the abundance of cryptophytes (smaller and less nutritious flagellates). Both in the short- and long-term, these trends are expected to continue as ocean warming aggravates, potentially with severe consequences for the pelagic food web.

Within the PHYTO-UP project, laboratory experiments with microcosms are being used to explore the response of both diatoms and cryptophytes to changes in the environmental conditions (temperature, salinity, light availability) simulating warming, and subsequent ice melting and enhanced stratification. Two key species previously isolated from summer campaigns to the NAP and stored at FURG are being tested: the diatom Porosira glaciallis and cryptophyte Geminigera cryophile. In particular, we want to explore whether cryptophytes are likely to respond favourably to climate-driven ocean warming, leading them to be more frequent in the future, at the expense of diatoms.

POLAR2E Professor publishes a new paper in Nature Communications Earth & Environment - “Climate warming amplified the 2020 record-breaking heatwave in the Antarctic Peninsula”

Ricardo Trigo, Associate Professor at the FCUL and member of the POLAR2E College, participated in a study led by colleagues from the Antarctic Group of the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the CSIC and the University of Barcelona, where it is confirmed that climate change is partially responsible for the amplification of major heat waves on the Antarctic continent. In particular, the study concluded that the probability of experiencing a similar heat wave increased about ten times from 1950-1984, largely due to climatic change.
The paper entitled "Climate warming amplified the 2020 record-breaking heatwave in the Antarctic Peninsula" was published in the journal "Communications Earth & Environment" which is part of the group "Nature". It describes one of the most intense heat waves recorded on the Peninsula Antarctica that took place between February 6 and 11, 2020. A new absolute temperature long-term record for the entire Antarctic continent was observed on February 6, 2020, with 18.3ºC registered at the Esperanza base.

Viktoriya Nikitina

Viktoriya Nikitina has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Relations from the School of Social Sciences and Humanities of the NOVA University of Lisbon and a master’s degree in Strategy from the Institute of Social and Political Sciences (ISCSP) of the University of Lisbon. She became a member of POLAR2E earlier this year. Currently, she is enrolled in a PhD in International Relations at ISCSP, University of Lisbon, focusing on the Russian Foreign Policy in the Arctic and is involved as a member of the Early Career Researchers Newsletter Editorial team.

(Interview by Bernardo Costa)

How did you end up working in polar science? ☃️
I started to get interested in polar social sciences during my internship at the Portuguese Navy. There, I was researching Arctic geopolitics, namely Russian geopolitics in the Arctic, and found this topic fascinating and new. I understood that global warming will cause drastic changes in the arctic regions and the importance to study the change from a geopolitical and strategic perspective. 

What does a typical day look like in your PhD student life? 👨‍🎓
I always try to engage myself in different tasks during the day. To avoid boringness, I start my day by doing some review of the literature (with lots of reading), then writing down my ideas, watching some institutional videos, and at the end of the day, I do some extra readings. Unfortunately, my research does not include research on the field so I try to make different things every day. 

What are your current goals? In what way do you believe POLAR2E will help you to reach your research goal? ✔
My current goals are related to scientific contributions. For the next academic year, I have in mind some scientific contributions I want to make and events/conferences that I want to attend. POLAR2E will certainly be a helpful platform to engage with other researchers and discuss my ideas. Hopefully, this year we will get more social sciences researchers. 

What steps did you take to adapt your PhD research amidst the COVID-19 pandemic? 🦠

Fortunately, I got lucky. Since my PhD research does not involve research in the field, I did not have to adapt. Sometimes I need to go to the university’s library, but, practically, all my research is done at home. Although I was really sad to have to attend the Arctic Science Summit Week in 2021 from home, I hope that more opportunities will come to visit different Arctic places as the restrictions are down. 

Can you describe the importance of your study to the Arctic Geopolitics Knowledge? 🌐
Roughly said, geopolitics is the model of power based on geography. Due to global warming, the Arctic is becoming gradually more open and accessible. The geographic changes caused by climate change are awakening geopolitical and strategic interests in the region. Navigation routes, along the Russian coast and Canadian archipelago, enable to cut distances and save fuel expenses. High amounts of oil and gas are becoming more accessible. 
My research will contribute to Arctic geopolitics by understanding better what Russia perceives about its geography in the Arctic and its position in the international system, and what it tries to achieve in the Arctic now that the Ukrainian conflict has escalated to war between Russia. 

Did your dissertation change results/approaches due to the ongoing war? ⚔️
The Russian invasion of Ukraine was a critical moment for those that study International Relations. It has changed everything. My research topic is Russian Foreign Policy in the Arctic. Now I had to look at the Russian policy with other eyes. I’ve changed the lens of analysis of the Russian goals in the Arctic from a cooperative approach to a more realistic one.


Lígia F. Coelho was awarded a Fulbright Schuman

Lígia F. Coelho, a PhD student at CQE and Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences (iBB), IST, soon to defend her thesis, was recently awarded a Fulbright Schuman award to pursue a postdoc at Cornell University, USA. Her work will focus on the study and creation of databases of biosignatures that serve as a tool for space missions searching for extraterrestrial life.

Afonso Ferreira received a Fulbright Grant for Research with the support of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia

Afonso Ferreira, a PhD student in Marine Sciences at the Faculdade de Ciências of the University of Lisbon, has been awarded a Fulbright Grant for Research with the support of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT).
The Fulbright grant will allow Afonso to stay 5 months (April-August 2023) at the University of Rutgers, in New Jersey, under the supervision of Prof. Oscar Schofield, chief scientist of the National Science Foundation‘s funded Palmer Long Term Ecological Research program. During this time, Afonso will study the link between the dynamics of phytoplankton communities and CO2 fluxes in the Southern Ocean using both field and satellite data. See the link for more information.

Viktoriya Nikitina is now a master in Strategy

POLAR2E ECR Viktoriya Nikitina (ISCSP) has successfully defended her master’s thesis entitled “The Arctic, Russia and Coercion of Navigation in the 21st Century”. Her study concluded that Russia benefits from limitations in the Law of the Sea to create a different legal regime in the Northern Sea Route (NSR) that restricts freedom of navigation to protect and control this route in light of global warming. Also, coercion of navigation in the NSR is complemented by the power of dissuasion created by Russian naval power (composed of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Coast Guard).

POLAR2E ECR participated in the EGU General Assembly

Several POLAR2E Early Career Researchers attended the EGU General Assembly held in Vienna from 23 to 27 of May 2022. This congress is one of the most prestigious European events within the geosciences community. 

The PhD candidate Marcelo Fernandes (CEG/IGOT - University of  Lisbon) presented part of the PhD thesis entitled "Maximum glacier extent of the Penultimate Glacial Cycle in the Upper Garonne Basin (Pyrenees): new chronological evidence" in the oral session of "Mountain glaciations: Developments in geomorphology, geochronology, glaciology and climate change".
