Hyperborean microbiome on the coastline of a highly vacillating ecosystem

2 coastal areas (Adventfjorden-Andvendalen, Bilefjorden) will be described in respect of habitat and cyanobacteria/microalgae community diversity. Main ecological parameters (physico-chemical conditions, description of habitats including geographical and ecological properties), ecophysiological performances and dominant species will be recorded.

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.

An ecophysiological assay of the microphytobenthic community in different habitats along the arctic sea shore will be performed. Our aim in this study is to provide a seminal background knowledge on arctic microphybenthos ecological traits which will promote further research on that very poorly known topic. The coastal zone of the Arctic Ocean is among the ecosystems most affected by current sea level increase and by increasing coastal pressures both anthropogenic and environmental. It is the site of dramatic changes in not only the land and ocean but also in the cryosphere and biosphere. This study will come in line with broader researches carried out by The International Arctic Science Committee and its working group “Arctic Coastal Dynamics -” which coordinates circumpolar research on physical and biological processes unique to Arctic coasts.
