Summary

The identification of heavy metals such as mercury, and highly persistent lipophilic anthropogenic contaminants in the circumpolar food chain of all Arctic countries has raised awareness in wildlife scientists, and human health authorities on the need to better understand the possible climate-mediated influence on atmospheric and ocean transport mechanisms on the exposure of biota, including humans, in the Arctic. Certain contaminants are known to interfere with immune response in both humans and wildlife.Researchers developed a village climate and health impact assessment tool; identified climate change vulnerabilities for the Native Village of Selawik and developed a climate adaptation strategy; developed biomonitoring tools to assess [...]
