Effect of Climate change On The Arctic Benthos (ECOTAB)

It is now generally admitted that effects of climate change are enhanced in polar areas. Those changes will have repercussions on the entire ecosystem functioning and carbon cycling, although it is yet unclear how benthic organisms will respond to those changes in food sources and environmental conditions. The overarching goal of this study is to i

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

It is now generally admitted that effects of climate change are enhanced in polar areas. Those changes will have repercussions on the entire ecosystem functioning and carbon cycling, although it is yet unclear how benthic organisms will respond to those changes in food sources and environmental conditions. The overarching goal of this study is to investigate how climate-induced changes in biological (food sources) and environmental conditions (temperature, pH, salinity), will impact the Arctic benthos. This project will combine existing data, new field data, and a new experimental approach which will test various scenarios of food (i.e. high food quality, low food quality) and pH, salinity, temperature (perturbation experiments) therefore improving understanding of present state Arctic coastal ecosystem function, and prediction of possible feedback scenarios of the ecosystem to changes in a less ice-rich Arctic due to climate warming.
