• Asynchronous Accumulation of Organic Carbon and Nitrogen in the Atlantic Gateway to the Arctic Ocean 

      Paulsen, Maria Lund; Seuthe, Lena; Reigstad, Marit; Larsen, Aud; Cape, Matthias; Vernet, Maria (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-15)
      Nitrogen (N) is the main limiting nutrient for biological production in the Arctic Ocean. While dissolved inorganic N (DIN) is well studied, the substantial pool of N bound in organic matter (OM) and its bioavailability ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • In the dark: a review of ecosystem processes during the Arctic polar night 

      Berge, Jørgen; Renaud, Paul; Darnis, Gérald; Cottier, Finlo; Last, Kim; Gabrielsen, Tove M.; Johnsen, Geir; Seuthe, Lena; Weslawski, Jan Marcin; Leu, Eva; Moline, Mark A.; Nahrgang, Jasmine; Søreide, Janne; Varpe, Øystein; Lønne, Ole Jørgen; Daase, Malin; Falk-Petersen, Stig (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-08-28)
      Several recent lines of evidence indicate that the polar night is key to understanding Arctic marine ecosystems. First, the polar night is not a period void of biological activity even though primary production is close ...
    • Microbial communities and processes in ice-covered Arctic waters of the northwestern Fram Strait (75 to 80° N) during the vernal pre-bloom phase 

      Seuthe, Lena; Töpper, Birte; Reigstad, Marit; Thyrhaug, Runar; Vaquer-Sunyer, Raquel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-09-20)
      Marine microbial communities have been little studied in Arctic waters, especially during the winter–spring transition before the development of extensive phytoplankton blooms. This study investigated microbial plankton ...
    • 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 ...
