PhD project title:
Seasonality and activity of Arctic zooplankton.
PhD project description:
My PhD will consist in identifying seasonal and diel zooplankton behaviour in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters. The first chapter of my PhD will be about the seasonal light response of Calanus finmarchicus in a high latitude fjord. This response is studied by recording individual behaviour of C. finmarchicus in the laboratory under natural light cycle every month. In parallel, I use acoustic methods to determine the migration behaviour of zooplankton. The second chapter is a long time series of acoustic data from Rijpfjord, Svalbard. The aim is to know how zooplankton’s vertical migration change seasonally and through the year in a known environment. To be able to predict those behaviour under climate change. The third chapter as for purpose to use acoustic data from autonomous drifting observatories, to have a pan arctic image of zooplankton behaviour.
