Research

Snæfellsnes Research Centre is involved in various projects with emphasis on the nature of the west coast of Iceland. What research subjects are chosen depend somewhat on the specializations of the staff. Birds have been our main subjects.

Our main topic these days is the breeding ecology and site fidelity of common eider in the Breiðafjörður Islands (click the link).

The environment and bird-life of Snæfellsnes and Breiðafjörður are shaped in large by the surrounding sea. The seabird colonies range from few pairs up to one of the largest birdcliffs in the World, Látrabjarg.

The projects are mostly focused on population dynamics and breeding ecology. Common eider, great cormorant, arctic tern, kittiwake and whooper swan have been our main study species.
