Colonization, settlement, land-use, and political change in the North Atlantic. My primary research focuses on Iceland, preferring a long-term perspective on change spanning the 9th-19th centuries, rather than an exclusive focus on one period or analytical specialization. Current and active research on the use and interpretation of a Viking Age ritual site within one of Iceland's longest lava caves, on geochemical analyses of Icelandic opals and jaspers, and on the geochemical analysis of pigments used on Icelandic medieval illuminated manuscripts are all parts of a longer-term focus on materiality, mobility, and socio-political change in western Iceland and the North Atlantic.
I am also currently a co-PI on the NSF-funded Arctic Horizons project, examining priorities and goals for US social science research and funding in the North over the next decade.

My research focuses on human vulnerability to environmental change (including climate change). The focus is primarily on indigenous peoples (current work on Inuit in the Canadian High Arctic and the Canadian western Arctic). Research examines human adaptive capacity, including current/past adaptation measures and past/current/future environmental/climate exposures to 1) assess current/future vulnerability; 2) integrate indigenous knowledge into science and policymaking.

My main research activity is within "The fate of mercury in the Arctic". Furthermore I am head of your monitoring activities in Greenland, where we presently have a station at St. Nord. The following species are measured by a filter pack: SO2, and particle bound metals and NO3, NH4. We use monitors for Hg(0), NOx, O3. These data can be seen online on our website Finally we have a high volume sampler for POP's as OC, brominated flame retardance and perfluoro telomer alcohols. The activities are part of AMAP and the station is contibuting to IPY-ATMOPOL.

Dissolved organic material (DOM) in the Arctic ocean has the highest concentration in any ocean basin, and is potentially an important factor in supporting the net heterotrophic open ocean in the Arctic. However, this DOM is mostly unknown on the molecular level. As a part of the NSF supported Shelf-Basin Interaction program, our group does molecular level studies of DOM in the Arctic Ocean with the following goals: -determine whether the high DOC concentrations in the Arctic Ocean include a higher concentration of biologically labile components than are found in other oceans. -determine the relative biological lability of DOM from riverine inputs to the Arctic Ocean and compare that to relative lability of DOM formed in situ. -determine which biologically labile compounds in the Arctic have detectable concentrations, in order to carry out flux studies on a molecular level to calculate a reasonable heterotrophic incorporation efficiency for the Arctic Ocean during phase II of the SBI effort.
