MY RESEARCH

Sea ice ecology and the sea ice as an ecosystem with a variety of microorganisms living and thriving inside the sea ice as algae, bacteria, virus and fungi. What are their physiological adaptations to this extreme environment inside the ice where it’s cold, dark and high saline.

EXAMPLES OF RESEARCH PROJECTS

Sea ice extent is decreasing in the Arctic and in near future there is no sea ice in summer.

Will these new conditions increase primary production in central Arctic Ocean, and thereby also increase the fisheries in the Arctic Ocean?

IMPORTANT METHODS AND RESULTS

We have applied new image based methods for measuring primary production in sea ice and taken a step further with the development of hyperspectral cameras for under ice distribution and pigment compositions of ice algae.

COLLABORATION

Development of image based and hyper spectral methods for mapping sea ice algae has been in collaboration with researchers from New Zealand, Australia, and US.
