The Arctic has in the recent decades been increasingly affected by industry development, such as mining and extraction of hydrocarbons, and logistics. At the same time, pronounced climatic changes have occurred affecting the environmental quality. It is of critical importance that there is an environmental management of the vulnerable Arctic region based on scientific knowledge. The session aims to create a forum for sharing of experiences among scientists and engineers concerning methods to reduce the environmental burden caused by past and current industrial activities in the Arctic.
