BAS cartographers have produced a new map of Greenland and the Arctic in the North Atlantic region. The map (1:4,000,000) is the most detailed paper map available of the entire region, with up-to-date detail of current ice margins and Greenlandic names.
On the back, it features a science information sheet where scientists at various UK universities and institutes, (e.g. BAS, the UK Met Office and WWF) have provided concise summaries highlighting current issues at play in the Arctic, ranging from human development to climate change, as well as a description of the fascinating wildlife present in these regions.
Find out more on the BAS website and the BBC - the latter with a nice interview of Laura Gerrish, the cartographer behind the map!
Thanks to the NERC Arctic Office and BAS for the opportunity to be involved in the science part of the map!
