The dynamics of Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) assemblages in response to environmental change during the past 700 years on Svalbard (Springer, 2004)The impact of recent natural and human-induced environmental change on chironomid faunas on Svalbard has been investigated. The modern chironomid fauna was studied from surface-sediment samples collected from 23 lakes in ...Peer reviewedJournal article
(Springer, 2004)Surface sediments from 23 lakes on Svalbard were analysed for diatoms. 182 taxa were found but samples generally have a low richness, with the majority of sites dominated by benthic genera such as Fragilaria, Navicula, and ...Peer reviewedJournal article
A quantitative description of the West Spitsbergen Current by combining hydrography, altimetry and in-situ current meters (The University of Bergen and University Centre in Svalbard, UNIS, 2014-06-02)In a warming Arctic Ocean (AO) it is important to study its main source of oceanic heat and salt. Here, seasonal climatological sections of the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC) across 78.83°N have been constructed using ...Master thesis
Recent environmental change and atmospheric contamination on Svalbard as recorded in lake sediments – an introduction (Springer, 2004)This paper outlines an interdisciplinary project on recent environmental change and atmospheric contamination on the high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard (76º30'N – 80º30'N). It describes the rationale and aims of the project ...Peer reviewedJournal article
