Since 1961, when the research station was founded, KLRS has provided support for studies in glaciology, geomorphology, geology, biology, botany, zoology, hydrology, limnology, climatology, high-altitude physiology, social sciences, anthropology, and archaeology. Over 1500 publications have resulted from these research activities many of which are described in the KLRS Bibliography:

in celebration of the 50th anniversary of KLRS in 2011, a special issue of Arctic was produced in 2014. In addition to papers on current research, the issue also contains a history of the scientific research prior to 2011. You can download that below.
