Environment and Social Change in the North Atlantic ArcCodfish drying in Lofotens, Norway

A study of linkages between environment and social change in four fisheries-dependent regions of the northern Atlantic: Newfoundland/Labrador, Greenland, Iceland and Norway. The project integrates natural science (oceanography and biology) with both quantitative and qualitative social science. In two stages, it has been supported mainly by grants from the Arctic System Science (1996-2000) and Arctic Social Sciences (2000-2003) programs of the U.S. National Science Foundation.
