    • Pinngortitaq – a place of becoming 

      Lennert, Ann Eileen; Berge, Jørgen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Arctic ecosystems are on the verge of changes that are unprecedented in both magnitude and velocity. We stress that statements of a changing climate and environment have ambiguous definitions in both theoretical and ...
    • Population structure, parasitism and prey preference in Sclerocrangon boreas and S. ferox, Svalbard 

      Bjørdalsbakke, Lise Kristin (Master thesis, 2011)
      The aim of this study was to enhance the knowledge on ecological and life-history parameters of Sclerocrangon boreas and Sclerocrangon ferox in Svalbard waters, including sex ratio, population structure, parasitism and ...
    • Seabirds during Arctic Polar Night: underwater observations from Svalbard archipelago, Norway 

      Ostaszewska, Kaja; Balazy, Piotr; Berge, Jørgen; Johnsen, Geir; Staven, Robert (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Visually-oriented predators, such as seabirds, are highly light dependent, and thus their presence and activity under continuously dark conditions of Arctic polar night pose a number of questions about the strategies and ...
    • Seasonal Variability in the Zooplankton Community Structure in a Sub-Arctic Fjord as Revealed by Morphological and Molecular Approaches 

      Coguiec, Estelle; Ershova, Elizaveta; Daase, Malin; Vonnahme, Tobias R.; Wangensteen, Owen S.; Gradinger, Rolf; Præbel, Kim; Berge, Jørgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Phyto- and zooplankton in Arctic and sub-Arctic seas show very strong seasonal changes in diversity and biomass. Here we document the seasonal variability in the mesozooplankton community structure in a sub-Arctic fjord ...
    • Shallow-Water Scavengers of Polar Night and Day – An Arctic Time-Lapse Photography Study 

      Bałazy, Piotr; Anderson, Marti J.; Chełchowski, Maciej; Włodarska-Kowalczuk, Maria; Kukliński, Piotr; Berge, Jørgen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Until recently, polar night constituted truly a “mare incognitum” of our times. Yet, the first records from this very little-explored period showcased a surprisingly rich and active ecosystem. This investigation aims to ...
    • Still Arctic? — The changing Barents Sea 

      Gerland, Sebastian; Ingvaldsen, Randi Brunvær; Reigstad, Marit; Sundfjord, Arild; Bogstad, Bjarte; Chierici, Melissa; Hop, Haakon; Renaud, Paul Eric; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Stige, Leif Christian; Årthun, Marius; Berge, Jørgen; Bluhm, Bodil Annikki Ulla Barbro; Borgå, Katrine; Bratbak, Gunnar; Divine, Dmitry V; Eldevik, Tor; Eriksen, Elena; Fer, Ilker; Fransson, Agneta; Gradinger, Rolf Rudolf; Granskog, Mats A.; Haug, Tore; Husum, Katrine; Johnsen, Geir; Jonassen, Marius Opsanger; Jørgensen, Lis Lindal; Kristiansen, Svein; Larsen, Aud; Lien, Vidar Surén; Lind, Sigrid; Lindstrøm, Ulf Ove; Mauritzen, Cecilie; Melsom, Arne; Mernild, Sebastian H.; Müller, Malte; Nilsen, Frank; Primicerio, Raul; Søreide, Janne; van der Meeren, Gro Ingleid; Wassmann, Paul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2023)
      The Barents Sea is one of the Polar regions where current climate and ecosystem change is most pronounced. Here we review the current state of knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological systems in the Barents Sea. ...
    • Summer and winter MgCO3 levels in the skeletons of Arctic bryozoans 

      Iglikowska, Anna; Krzemińska, Małgorzata; Renaud, Paul Eric; Berge, Jørgen; Hop, Haakon; Kuklinski, Piotr (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In the Arctic, seasonal patterns in seawater biochemical conditions are shaped by physical, chemical, and biological processes related to the alternation of seasons, i.e. winter polar night and summer midnight sun. In ...
    • The advective origin of an under-ice spring bloom in the Arctic Ocean using multiple observational platforms 

      Johnsen, Geir; Norli, Marit; Moline, Mark A.; Robbins, Ian; Quillfeldt, Cecilie von; Sørensen, Kai; Cottier, Finlo Robert; Berge, Jørgen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Under-ice blooms of phytoplankton in the Chukchi Sea have been observed, with strong implications for our understanding of the production regimes in the Arctic Ocean. Using a combination of satellite remote sensing of ...
    • Towards a unifying pan-arctic perspective: A conceptual modelling toolkit 

      Wassmann, Paul; Carmack, E.; Bluhm, Bodil; Duarte, Carlos M.; Berge, Jørgen; Brown, K.; Grebmeier, Jacqueline M.; Holding, Johnna; Kosobokova, Ksenia; Kwok, R.; Matrai, Patricia A.; Agusti, S.; Babin, Marcel; Bhatt, Uma S.; Eicken, Hajo; Polyakov, Igor V.; Rysgaard, Søren; Huntington, Henry P. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The Arctic Ocean is overwhelmingly forced by its lateral boundaries, and interacts with, the global system. For the development of nested conceptual models of the Arctic Ocean ecosystem we here choose the full pan-Arctic ...
    • Underwater Hyperspectral Imaging of Arctic Macroalgal Habitats during the Polar Night Using a Novel Mini-ROV-UHI Portable System 

      Summers, Natalie; Johnsen, Geir; Mogstad, Aksel Alstad; Løvås, Håvard; Fragoso, Glaucia Moreira; Berge, Jørgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      We describe an Underwater Hyperspectral Imager (UHI) deployed on an instrument-carrying platform consisting of two interconnected mini-ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for the mapping and monitoring of Arctic macroalgal ...
    • Use of an Autonomous Surface Vehicle reveals small-scale diel vertical migrations of zooplankton and susceptibility to light pollution under low solar irradiance
