Evidence for light-controlled migration amplitude of a sound scattering layer in the Norwegian Sea (Inter-Research, 2016)The oceanic sound scattering layer (SL) is an ubiquitous acoustic signature of mesopelagic fishes and invertebrates that are important food sources for the oceanic macrofauna and players in the biological carbon pump. We ...Journal article
Growth and diel vertical migration patterns of the toxic dinoflagellate Protoceratium reticulatum in a water column with salinity stratification: the role of bioconvection and light (MEPS, 2015-11-12)Novel data on growth and migratory behaviour of a southern Norwegian strain of Protoceratium reticulatum (Dinophyceae) were obtained from long-lasting (14-22 d) experiments in a water column with salinity gradient (ΔS = 4 ...Journal article
Light comfort zones of mesopelagic acoustic scattering layers in two contrasting optical environments (Elsevier, 2016-07)We make a comparison of the mesopelagic sound scattering layers (SLs) in two contrasting optical environments; the clear Red Sea and in murkier coastal waters of Norway (Masfjorden). The depth distributions of the SL in ...Journal article
