Abstract (in English)

From 26 August to 11 September 2000 the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat organized a cultural science expedition to Spitsbergen (SWEDARCTIC 2000) under the scientific leadership of Urban Wråkberg, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Pär Eliasson, Umeå University, was leader of project “History of Climatology in the Arctic: German Weather Stations at Spitsbergen 1941-1945” and I had been invited to join his group as German expert.
