About the Research Station
As early as 1903 a research station was developed at Katterjokk, some 35 km west of Abisko. When the building burned down in 1910, a superior facility was built in Abisko, where meteorological monitoring and natural science research started in 1913. The station now holds a unique environmental record that extends 100 years back in time, as well as a vast portfolio of research activities totalling some 3,000 scientific publications.
