• Accumulation and distribution of microplastics in coastal sediments from the inner Oslofjord, Norway 

      Bronzo, Laura; Lusher, Amy L.; Schøyen, Merete; Morigi, Caterina (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Microplastic presence in benthic marine systems is a widely discussed topic. The influence of the natural matrix on microplastic distribution within the sedimentary matrix is often overlooked. Marine sediments from the ...
    • Evaluation of a eukaryote phylogenetic microarray for environmental monitoring of marine sediments 

      Lekang, Katrine; Lanzén, Anders; Jonassen, Inge; Thompson, Eric; Troedsson, Christofer (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Increased exploitation of resources in sensitive marine ecosystems emphasizes the importance of knowledge regarding ecological impacts. However, current bio-monitoring practices are limited in terms of target-organisms and ...
    • Long term simulations of potential oil spills around Cuba 

      Hole, Lars Robert; Martins de Aguiar, Victor; Dagestad, Knut-Frode; Kourafalou, Vassiliki H.; Androulidakis, Yannis; Kang, Heesook; Le Hénaff, Matthieu; Calzada, Amilcar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Simulations over eight years of continuous surface oil spills around Cuba are carried out to identify the most likely stranding (beaching) locations. The open source Lagrangian oil drift model OpenOil is applied with high ...
    • Quantitative assessment of two oil-in-ice surface drift algorithms 

      Martins de Aguiar, Victor Cesar; Dagestad, Knut-Frode; Hole, Lars Robert; Barthel, Knut Sven (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      The ongoing reduction in extent and thickness of sea ice in the Arctic might result in an increase of oil spill risk due to the expansion of shipping activity and oil exploration shift towards higher latitudes. This work ...
    • Simulating particle organic matter dispersal beneath Atlantic salmon fish farms using different resuspension approaches 

      Carvajalino-Fernandez, Marcos Antonio; Sævik, Pål Næverlid; Johnsen, Ingrid Askeland; Albretsen, Jon; Keeley, Nigel B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-08)
      An accurate representation of the particle organic matter (POM) footprint is necessary in order to effectively predict impacts upon benthic communities and the risk of excessive organic enrichment beneath aquaculture ...
