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.

Research interests:

Marine plankton ecology and flux of organic matter

Main focus: Fate of primary production through vertical carbon export and regulation and physical-biological coupling influencing production and export.

I started my career in fjords, investigating how the pelagic plankton community regulated vertical flux of organic matter, seasonality, and the impact of advection on fjord ecology. Since 2000, I have worked in the Arctic seasonal ice zone on how the physical environment impacts plankton productivity and communities and the resulting vertical flux of organic matter. I have used short term sediment traps for flux studies, experimental studies on particle attenuation and modification, and physical-biological coupled modeling for up-scaling to larger temporal and spatial scales, as well as to evaluate specific processes and interactions.

PhD Project title:

Underwater hyperspectral imaging: Methods for identification, monitoring and mapping of light regime and biogeochemical objects in polar regions.

PhD Project description:

The focus of my PhD research will be on developing methods for the use of Underwater Hyperspectral imaging for measuring the light regime under sea-ice and the identification, mapping and monitoring of sea-ice fauna and algae communities. These methods have the potential of making the mapping of arctic marine ecosystems more efficient and therefore contribute significantly to the main research focus of ARCTOS.
