• Bacterial Response to Permafrost Derived Organic Matter Input in an Arctic Fjord 

      Müller, Oliver; Seuthe, Lena; Bratbak, Gunnar; Paulsen, Maria Lund (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-08-06)
      The warming of the Arctic causes increased riverine discharge, coastal erosion, and the thawing of permafrost. Together, this is leading to an increased wash out of terrestrial dissolved organic matter (tDOM) into the ...
    • Biological transformation of Arctic dissolved organic matter in a NE Greenland fjord 

      Paulsen, Maria Lund; Müller, Oliver; Larsen, Aud; Møller, Eva Friis; Middelboe, Mathias; Sejr, Mikael Kristian; Stedmon, Colin A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-12-07)
      Arctic waters are often enriched with terrestrial dissolved organic matter (DOM) characterized by having elevated visible wavelength fluorescence (commonly termed humic-like). Here, we have identified the sources of ...
    • Carbon Bioavailability in a High Arctic Fjord Influenced by Glacial Meltwater, NE Greenland 

      Paulsen, Maria Lund; Nielsen, Sophia Elisabeth Bardram; Müller, Oliver; Møller, Eva Friis; Stedmon, Colin A.; Juul-Pedersen, Thomas; Markager, Stiig; Sejr, Mikael Kristian; Delgado Huertas, Antonio; Larsen, Aud; Middelboe, Mathias (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-06-08)
      The land-to-ocean flux of organic carbon is increasing in glacierized regions in response to increasing temperatures in the Arctic (Hood et al., 2015). In order to understand the response of the coastal ecosystem metabolism ...
    • Changes in marine prokaryote composition with season and depth over an Arctic polar year 

      Wilson, Bryan; Müller, Oliver; Nordmann, Eva-Lena; Seuthe, Lena; Bratbak, Gunnar; Øvreås, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-04-13)
      As the global climate changes, the higher latitudes are seen to be warming significantly faster. It is likely that the Arctic biome will experience considerable shifts in ice melt season length, leading to changes in ...
    • Disentangling the complexity of permafrost soil by using high resolution profiling of microbial community composition, key functions and respiration rates 

      Müller, Oliver; Bang‐Andreasen, Toke; White III, Richard Allen; Elberling, Bo; Taş, Neslihan; Kneafsey, Timothy J.; Jansson, Janet K; Øvreås, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-12-13)
      Thawing permafrost can stimulate microbial activity, leading to faster decomposition of formerly preserved organic matter and CO2 release. Detailed knowledge about the vertical distribution of the responsible microbial ...
    • Implications of a changing Arctic on microbial communities: Following the effects of thawing permafrost from land to sea 

      Müller, Oliver (Doctoral thesis, 2018-06-14)
      Climate change has severe impacts in the Arctic, where permafrost is thawing, glaciers are retreating and sea ice is melting. These physical changes are not only affecting large predators like polar bears, but also microscopic ...
    • Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Ammonia-Oxidizing Thaumarchaeota in Distinct Arctic Water Masses 

      Müller, Oliver; Wilson, Bryan; Paulsen, Maria Lund; Rumińska, Agnieszka; Armo, Hilde R.; Bratbak, Gunnar; Øverås, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-23)
      One of the most abundant archaeal groups on Earth is the Thaumarchaeota. They are recognized as major contributors to marine ammonia oxidation, a crucial step in the biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen. Their universal ...
    • Synechococcus in the Atlantic Gateway to the Arctic Ocean 

      Paulsen, Maria Lund; Doré, Hugo; Garczarek, Laurence; Seuthe, Lena; Müller, Oliver; Sandaa, Ruth-Anne; Bratbak, Gunnar; Larsen, Aud (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-10-05)
      Increasing temperatures, with pronounced effects at high latitudes, have raised questions about potential changes in species composition, as well as possible increased importance of small-celled phytoplankton in marine ...
