23 May 2022 Ocean acidification damages the marine ecosystem
Adam Ulfsbo is a researcher at the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Gothenburg and was one of the participants in the research expedition Synoptic Arctic Survey 2021 with the icebreaker Oden. There he investigated processes and factors behind changes in carbon storage and ocean acidification.
Abisko Scientific Research Station was built in 1912 after the research station in Katterjokk burned down. The following year, the meteorological measurements were started, and for several decades data has been collected on behalf of SMHI. The over one-hundred-year long series of measurements has qualified the measuring station as a Centennial Observing Station, an award given by the World Meteorological Organization WMO.
What is the abundance, diversity, growth rate and respiration of Bacteria and Archea in the Arctic Ocean ecosystem? This is the question Johan Wikner, Professor in Ecology at Umeå University, and his team studied during the Synoptic Arctic Survey 2021 expedition with the icebreaker Oden.
01 Feb 2022 "I pay attention to details and am alert to what is around me. Always with an eye for rocks, lines and dots."
It's time to welcome an artist to a research expedition with the icebreaker Oden! The visual artist Cecilia Cissi Hultman will participate in ArcOP 2022 to the Arctic Ocean. She received the news while in Berlin.
Anna Wåhlin is a professor of Oceanography at the University of Gothenburg. In January, she will participate in an expedition on the American research vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer. The goal is to continue research on what happens beneath one of the largest floating glaciers in Antarctica, the Thwaites Glacier, using the autonomous underwater vehicle Ran.
22 Nov 2021 The bedrock can tell how Antarctica has changed
Two research projects are participating during this year's Antarctic Expedition DML 2021/22, which the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat organises. One of these projects is looking for answers to how Antarctica will develop in a future warmer climate. Part of the answer lies in bedrock and moving blocks that the ice sheet brought with it.
Ian Brown, Associate professor in Earth Observation at Stockholm University, leads one of two research groups that will conduct an expedition in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica, starting in December. The goal is to better understand the uncertainty in satellite measurements of the ice sheet is and what it depends on.
