Topfinancing "Impact of Timanian faults on Arctic Tectonics"

ArcTec proposes to study (1) the westward extent, kinematics and timing of formation, and (2) reactivation–overprint of Timanian (i.e., ca. 600 million years old) faults during subsequent tectonic events in the Arctic, and to (3) insert these faults into a detailed tectonic evolution model for Sv...

MARINE FUNGI ON JAN MAYEN (MFJM) - TAXONOMIC DIVERSITY AND NEW ANTIBACTERIAL SECONDARY METABOLITES

The proposed project (MFJM) aims to map the diversity and distribution of marine fungi on the remote Jan Mayen. Few studies have been performed on the island to map the diversity of fungi and none of these has reported occurrences of marine fungi. It is likely that the unique location host undesc...
