Dynamics of the snow ecosystem in Polar Regions (CHIMERPOLIII)

The multiannual CHIMERPOL III program consists of understanding the interactions between snow microorganisms and snowpack chemistry in the Arctic. How these components are connected and interrelated will be examined through both field and laboratory experiments. This program will also focus on the effects of mercury on microbial communities as well

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

The multiannual CHIMERPOL III program consists of understanding the interactions between snow microorganisms and snowpack chemistry in the Arctic. How these components are connected and interrelated will be examined through both field and laboratory experiments. This program will also focus on the effects of mercury on microbial communities as well as the microbial participation in the mercury cycle in the Arctic. Different types of snow environments, such as coastal sites, sea-ice and glaciers, will be studied throughout the duration of the program to determine microorganism community structure and evolution. Detailed chemical characterization of these environments will also be undertaken to determine mechanisms of mercury methylation and the transfer of mercury towards ecosystems at snow melt.
