PAGE21 project is very actively involved in field activities in all 5 primary and 7 secondary sites within the project. During the spring and summer seasons research groups from almost all participant institutions go on expeditions, collecting data on permafrost temperature, CO2 and CH4 fluxes and different features impacting the temperatures and fluxes in the tundra.

In these blogs the researchers explain the research done in each site and describe the life in remote tundra sites.
