    • Pelagic ecosystem characteristics across the atlantic water boundary current from Rijpfjorden, Svalbard, to the Arctic ocean during summer (2010-2014) 

      Hop, Haakon; Assmy, Philipp; Wold, Anette; Sundfjord, Arild; Daase, Malin; Duarte, Pedro; Kwasniewski, Slawomir; Gluchowska, Marta; Wiktor, Józef Maria; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Wiktor, Józef Maria Jr.; Kristiansen, Svein; Fransson, Agneta Ingrid; Chierici, Melissa; Vihtakari, Mikko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The northern coast of Svalbard contains high-arctic fjords, such as Rijpfjorden (80°N 22°30′E). This area has experienced higher sea and air temperatures and less sea ice in recent years, and models predict increasing ...
