• How well can near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) measure sediment organic matter in multiple lakes? 

      Ancin Murguzur, Francisco Javier; Brown, Antony; Clarke, Charlotte; Sjøgren, Per Johan E; Svendsen, John-Inge; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Loss-on-ignition (LOI) is the most widely used measure of organic matter in lake sediments, a variable related to both climate and land-use change. The main drawback for conventional measurement methods is the processing ...
    • Last Glacial Maximum environmental conditions at Andøya, northern Norway; evidence for a northern ice-edge ecological “hotspot” 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Sjøgren, Per Johan E; Brown, Antony; Gielly, Ludovic; Merkel, Marie Føreid; Paus, Aage; Lammers, Youri; Edwards, Mary E.; Alm, Torbjørn; Leng, Melanie; Goslar, Tomasz; Langdon, Cathrine; Bakke, Jostein; Van Der Bilt, Willem (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Andøya on the NW coast of Norway is a key site for understanding the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) in northern Europe. Controversy has arisen concerning the local conditions, especially about the timing and extent of local ...
    • Sedimentary ancient DNA shows terrestrial plant richness continuously increased over the Holocene in northern Fennoscandia 

      Rijal, Dilli Prasad; Heintzman, Peter D.; Lammers, Youri; Yoccoz, Nigel; Lorberau, Kelsey; Pitelkova, Iva; Goslar, Tomasz; Murguzur, Francisco Javier Ancin; Salonen, J. Sakari; Helmens, Karin F.; Bakke, Jostein; Edwards, Mary E.; Alm, Torbjørn; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Brown, Antony; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The effects of climate change on species richness are debated but can be informed by the past. Here, we generated a sedimentary ancient DNA dataset covering 10 lakes and applied novel methods for data harmonization. We ...
