(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The Arctic icescape is rapidly transforming from a thicker multiyear ice cover to a thinner and largely seasonal first-year ice cover with significant consequences for Arctic primary production. One critical challenge is ...
    • Ocean Acidification Effects on Atlantic Cod Larval Survival and Recruitment to the Fished Population
