09 Dec 2022 The icebreaker Oden took researchers to previously unexplored areas
The amount of fish in the central Arctic Ocean is very limited. Therefore, the fish stock needs to be protected when the Arctic Ocean becomes increasingly accessible due to melting sea ice. Pauline Leijonmalm, Chief Scientist during the Oden Expedition Synoptic Arctic Survey 2021, can look back on a successful expedition where the researchers could collect valuable data about the ecosystem in the Arctic.
23 Sep 2022 Viruses that hitchhike or kill
In the oceans, there are viruses that infect bacteria. Even though they have a major impact on our ecosystems, the research in this area is limited, especially from Arctic environments. Researchers who participated in the Synoptic Arctic Survey 2021 expedition are currently studying this. They want to understand how environmental pollution and climate change affect viruses, bacteria, and ecosystems in the future.
13 Sep 2022 From sea to cloud – what happens in the Arctic atmosphere?
To explain the reasons for the rapid warming in the Arctic, measurements of the atmosphere are needed. On the icebreaker Oden, researchers within the ACAS project have developed an atmospheric observatory to be able to study factors such as changes in clouds and the interactions between the surface and the atmosphere.
