Individuals who are interested in the effects of climate change and environmental conservation may be interested in studying ecology at a college or university. Ecology programs concentrate their instruction on biodiversity, environmental law, forestry, and pollution in order to help students think about environmental issues on a global scale.

Iceland officially the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country situated at the confluence of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Westfjords is peninsula located in northwestern Iceland lying on the Denmark Strait. It is renowned for its heavy snowing that is known to cover roads for several months in the year.

The course explores the patterns and processes of marine ecosystems. The main emphasis of the course is on the population and community ecology of marine ecosystems, relating such ecological knowledge to the broader context of the environmental challenges faced by marine organisms and humans on a global scale. Lectures provide an in-depth understanding of concepts such as i) the diversity of life, distribution and dispersal, principles of population growth, species interactions, primary production, decomposition and nutrient cycling in marine ecosystems, trophic dynamics and food webs, biodiversity, ecosystem stability and function, as well as disturbance and succession of communities; ii) human-induced impacts on coastal and marine ecosystems, as well as an introduction to ecosystem conservation. Discussion sessions and writing assignments serve to deepen the understanding of selected theoretical and practical concepts, approaches or applications as well as to train students in reading and writing scientific papers. -

The course Pollution in the Coastal Arctic introduces students to the chemistry related to contamination in the coastal zone. Chemical interactions in the interface of the sea, land, and air will be explained along with the transport of pollutants. The state of the coastal zones in the world will be discussed, as well as regional, national, and international monitoring practices and programs. An introduction to designing a monitoring program will be presented. Further, insight into our own lifestyle and the effects we have on the environment will be discussed. A special focus will be placed on the effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals on living organisms, with special emphasis on sea-birds. Emphasis is also placed on environmental chemistry, where students gain insights into chemical analyses and ecotoxicology. -
