• Artificial light during the polar night disrupts Arctic fish and zooplankton behavior down to 200 m depth 

      Berge, Jørgen; Geoffroy, Maxime; Daase, Malin; Cottier, Finlo Robert; Priou, Pierre; Cohen, Jonathan H.; Johnsen, Geir; McKee, David; Kostakis, I; Renaud, Paul E.; Vogedes, Daniel Ludwig; Anderson, Philip J.; Last, Kim; Gauthier, Stephane (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      For organisms that remain active in one of the last undisturbed and pristine dark environments on the planet—the Arctic Polar Night—the moon, stars and aurora borealis may provide important cues to guide distribution and ...
    • Eat or sleep: Availability of winter prey explains mid-winter and spring activity in an Arctic Calanus population 

      Hobbs, Laura; Banas, Neil S.; Cottier, Finlo Robert; Berge, Jørgen; Daase, Malin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Copepods of the genus Calanus have adapted to high levels of seasonality in prey availability by entering a period of hibernation during winter known as diapause, but repeated observations of active Calanus spp. have been ...
    • In the dark: a review of ecosystem processes during the Arctic polar night 

      Berge, Jørgen; Renaud, Paul; Darnis, Gérald; Cottier, Finlo; Last, Kim; Gabrielsen, Tove M.; Johnsen, Geir; Seuthe, Lena; Weslawski, Jan Marcin; Leu, Eva; Moline, Mark A.; Nahrgang, Jasmine; Søreide, Janne; Varpe, Øystein; Lønne, Ole Jørgen; Daase, Malin; Falk-Petersen, Stig (Journal article, 2015)
      Several recent lines of evidence indicate that the polar night is key to understanding Arctic marine ecosystems. First, the polar night is not a period void of biological activity even though primary production is close ...
    • Is ambient light during the high Arctic polar night sufficient to act as a visual cue for zooplankton? 

      Cohen, Jonathan H.; Berge, Jørgen; Moline, Mark A.; Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Last, Kim; Falk-Petersen, Stig; Renaud, Paul; Leu, Eva; Grenvald, Julie Cornelius; Cottier, Finlo; Cronin, Heather; Menze, Sebastian; Norgren, Petter; Varpe, Øystein; Daase, Malin; Darnis, Gérald; Johnsen, Geir (Journal article, 2015)
      The light regime is an ecologically important factor in pelagic habitats, influencing a range of biological processes. However, the availability and importance of light to these processes in high Arctic zooplankton communities ...
    • Pelagic occurrences of the ice amphipod Apherusa glacialis throughout the Arctic 

      Kunisch, Erin; Bluhm, Bodil; Daase, Malin; Gradinger, Rolf; Hop, Haakon; Melnikov, Igor A.; Øystein, Varpe; Berge, Jørgen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Apherusa glacialis is a common, sea ice-associated amphipod found throughout the Arctic Ocean and has long been considered permanently associated with the sea ice habitat. However, pelagic occurrences of A. glacialis have ...
    • Use of an Autonomous Surface Vehicle reveals small-scale diel vertical migrations of zooplankton and susceptibility to light pollution under low solar irradiance 

      Ludvigsen, Martin; Berge, Jørgen; Geoffroy, Maxime; Cohen, Jonathan H.; De La Torre, Pedro R.; Nornes, Stein Melvær; Singh, Hanumant; Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Daase, Malin; Johnsen, Geir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Light is a major cue for nearly all life on Earth. However, most of our knowledge concerning the importance of light is based on organisms’ response to light during daytime, including the dusk and dawn phase. When it is ...
