Glaciers and climate change

The Arctic is undergoing increased warming compared to the global mean, which has major implications for freshwater runoff into the oceans from melting glaciers. In this talk, we will look at how glaciers react to a warming climate and how melt-water from glaciers affect the ocean ecosystem.

The hidden forest in the Arctic

Primary producers are the base of every food web in the world. We are used to see them – the green growing everywhere. The Arctic is at first eyes sight a deserted flat and white landscape with its icecap free floating on top of the ocean. In this talk, I´ll tell you how to find and take you on a short journey into the hidden forest of the Arctic.

The Disappearance of an Unknown Species

The Arctic is changing, and it is likely it will become unrecognizable within the lifetime of the current generation. The disappearing sea-ice is home to many unknown species. In this talk, we dive deep into the secrets of the Arctic, the hidden and unknown species of algae, and the race against time in finding them before they disappear.

Fishes in the Arctic: the example of polar cod

A fish life in the icy water of the Arctic is not easy. It is cold, there is a lack of daylight during the winter, and a lot of predators are out there trying to eat you. In this talk we will follow the life of a polar cod and the challenges it may face, starting as an egg in the Southeast Barents Sea to ending as an adult in the icy waters of the Arctic.

The Arctics invisible pollution

Climate change and pollution are prominent and important topics now more than ever. Although many are familiar with plastic pollution, few are aware of invisible pollution caused by human-made chemicals. We will dive into the Arctic ocean and shed light on that invisible pollution, that not only reaches the long thought "pristine" Arctic, but also accumulates in Arctic animals, leaving them at high risk for toxic effects.
