Education

The course will give you insight into and understanding of the most important physical and chemical parameters e.g. light availability, nutrients, salinity, inorganic and organic carbon dynamics and temperature fluctuations relevant for the structure and function of Arctic sea ice ecosystem. You will obtain skills to discuss how future changes in those parameters will influence sea ice ecosystems. During the course you will get an understanding of sea ice as an ecosystem with its own unique characteristics and energy transport pathways. Finally, you will get an understanding of sea ice as an extreme ecosystem, focusing especially on sea ice algae and bacteria. The course takes place in Nuuk and it involves fieldwork in the Nuuk area.
