This report updates the findings of the previous SWIPA assessment (AMAP, 2011) by presenting new and significant findings from scientific publications since 2009. This information is organized by region, with multi-regional orpan-Arctic findings reported where appropriate. The review draws on more than 330 externally-reviewed journal articles: 172 (55%) of these refer to Greenland, which is more than twice as many as for all other regions (over 60 publications). More than 30 publications (12% of all research papers) are focused at the pan-Arctic or larger scale. The review concludes by identifying current gaps in knowledge.
