Dartmouth faculty and students are involved in diverse and interdisciplinary research in Polar Environmental Change. A number of graduate students are working on research related to Greenland.

About Polar Research

Dartmouth has forged a singular identity for combining its deep commitment to outstanding undergraduate and graduate education with distinguished research and scholarship. A new generation of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students are pursuing interdisciplinary collaboration and research as a pathway to understanding the environmental and human consequences of rapid environmental change in polar regions. 

The Institute of Arctic Studies has the honour of working with a diverse group of faculty who have expertise and knowledge in this area. Their profiles may be viewed under the Arctic & Polar Scholarship page.

A great resource for polar research is the Dartmouth Library system, where many resources are collected on the web page Polar Studies: A Research Guide. It lists many books, articles, maps, and more.
