  • Benthic ecology.

Project title:

The impact of chemosynthetic carbon sources in marine food webs at Arctic cold seeps

Project objective:

Understand the extent to which methane-derived carbon from cold seeps (originating from petroleum/gas reservoirs) is incorporated into higher trophic level organisms in the Barents Sea.

Project duration: 01.06.2018 – 31.05.2021

Project manager: Bodil Bluhm
