Determining thermal properties of permafrost in marine sedimentary deposits in Ilulissat.

"Using geothermal modelling in cold regions is very important as it provides important information vital for deciding on the optimal design for any construction project in cold regions. In Greenland this is important in the permafrost regions north of the Arctic Circle, especially in the relatively warm southern permafrost areas, where the ground is expected to thaw in the very near future, and where urban expansion plans and infrastructure projects might collide with challenging ground conditions and impending ground settlements caused by permafrost thaw."

Specialetitel og resumé

Shame, sovereignty and social issues - Comparing discourses on Greenlandic social issues and their effects on the move towards independence.

"Our discourse analysis shows that the social issues clearly affect the possibility of Greenlandic independence, and that there are considerable inconsistencies in how the social issues are formulated in Denmark and in Greenland. The question of Greenlandic independence is characterized by strenuous dilemmas, and on the basis of our results we conclude that the social issues constitute an obstacle to secession from Denmark."
