INTERACT and TSU's digital book shows the work of Arctic scientists


The largest EU project for the study of the Arctic, INTERACT II, and Tomsk State University have created a joint product - the interactive book INTERACTive e-book Stories of Arctic Science II. It provides information on studies of global changes in the Arctic, carried out by scientists around the world at INTERACT stations. The book, in which many natural processes are visualized using computer graphics, animation, and other tools, is intended for a wide audience. The users of the resource can be schoolchildren, teachers, students, lecturers, scientists, and people who are far from science, but who have an interest in global changes taking place on the planet. The presentation of the new resource took place at the UArctic Congress.

- In 2015, the first book, INTERACT Stories of Arctic Science, was published, but since then the INTERACT network has expanded and even more convincing evidence of environmental changes in the Arctic has become available, - says Terry Callaghan, the author of the idea, professor at TSU and the University of Sheffield, and one of the most renowned Arctic explorers. - The new book presents 41 stories of scientists and indigenous peoples of the Arctic.
