Environmental monitoring of the coastal waters of Svalbard using biosensors (Talking Clam 2)

This project seeks to evaluate the feasibility of a biosensor as a tool for real time on line monitoring the marine environment in Svalbard.

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

Monitoring the quality of ocean water is a major challenge especially in the Arctic. Traditional monitoring systems requires intense human involvement in sampling and performing expensive chemical analysis regularly. A desirable solution is to develop unmanned systems, able to work at high frequency by remote control, either as sensors by themselves or as early warning detectors to trigger a sampling campaign. This project seeks to evaluate the feasibility of a biosensor as a tool for real time on line monitoring the marine environment in Svalbard. By recording the daily growth of Chlamys islandica and its gapping behaviour we will study: i) The effects of climate upon the growth and behaviour of the species. ii) The effect of increased boat trafficking upon the species’ biological rhythms. These results are useful to understand the effects of climate change upon the natural environment while providing input for sustainable tourism and outdoor recreation.
