Geo-Bio Hazards in the Arctic Region (KO1115 HazArctic)
Funded by Kolarctic CBC 2014-2020

Objective of the project

HazArctic –project approaches environmental problems and risks of geo-bio hazards in the Arctic Region.

Main activities

It will study areal extension, mechanism and risk for oxidation of environments which can produce hazardously acid substances, both in man-made mining areas and potentially hazardous sulfur bearing Litorina clay sediments. Also the role of microbes in the geo-bio interaction in possible hazardous environments will be studied. In addition, studies related to the mine environments, for example stability of closed and open mines and mine tailings reuse, will be carried out. Project will also focus on training and analyzing of best practices.
