Overturning circulation in the new Arctic

Den atlantiske omveltningssirkulasjonen fører varmt, salt vann til høye breddegrader og er en nøkkelkomponent i den globale havsirkulasjonen og klimasystemet. Dannelsen av tungt vann (høy tetthet) på høye breddegrader er avgjørende for å opprettholde omveltningen. Tidligere har man antatt at denn...

Using the past (& present) to predict the effects of changing food environment and temperature on Northeast Arctic cod in the Barents Sea.

Tåler torsk varmere forhold og hvordan vil dette endre det de spiser? Torsk er en nøkkelart i Barentshavet; torsken er uten tvil en av de mest økologisk og økonomisk viktige artene i Nord-Atlanteren. Til tross for at den nordøstarktiske torskebestanden er i god stand og høstes bærekraftig er den...

Investigating spatial and seasonal patterns in settlement of benthic communities in Kongsfjorden

Early life history ecology, especially settlement of benthic invertebrates is a black box in marine ecology. Researching larval and settlement ecology in-situ is incredibly difficult and logistical constraints have further restricted studies in the Arctic. I will investigate early life history st...

Timing and origin of Miocene flood volcanism on Spitsbergen: the Seidfjellet Formation revisited (RiS ID 12088)

Mantle-derived volcanism accompanied the Cenozoic lithosphere evolution of the NE Greenland and NW Barents Sea shelves during final separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is unclear, however, to what extent continental breakup was influenced by deep-sourced mantle plume...

Dynamics of Arctic Leads

It is well documented that the Arctic Ocean is in a transition from perennially ice-covered ocean to a seasonally ice-covered one (Meredith et al., 2019). The shrinking and thinning of the ice cover has been attributed to changes in atmospheric and oceanic forcing (Notz and Stroeve, 2016; Polyako...

DeepReservoir – Predicting reservoir properties in deep structures on the Norwegian Continental Shelf: The critical role of chlorite-coats

De fleste hydrokarbonressursene på norsk kontinentalsokkel finnes i porøse sandsteinsreservoarer. Når sandsteiner blir begravd dypere enn ca. 3 km begynner porerommet å fylles av kvartssement. Dette reduserer reservoarets evne til å lagre væsker, som olje, gass eller CO2. Av denne grunn er dype r...
