Biography

Thesis title:

Phytoplankton incorporation into growing sea ice in the estuarine system of Ramfjorden

The aim of this study is to look at the formation of sea ice in Ramfjorden and how the incorporation of organisms takes place and changes, both in species composition and biomass, during the season but also along salinity and temperature gradients. This will be tested both from field samples taken in Ramfjorden and experiment conducted at UiT.
