• Carbon export in the seasonal sea ice zone north of Svalbard from winter to late summer 

      Dybwad, Christine; Assmy, Philipp; Olsen, Lasse Mork; Peeken, Ilka; Nikolopoulos, Anna; Krumpen, Thomas; Randelhoff, Achim; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Wiktor, Józef M.; Reigstad, Marit (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Phytoplankton blooms in the Arctic Ocean's seasonal sea ice zone are expected to start earlier and occur further north with retreating and thinning sea ice cover. The current study is the first compilation of phytoplankton ...
    • Effects of mortality changes on biomass and production in Calanus spp. populations 

      Skarðhamar, Jofrid; Reigstad, Marit; Carroll, JoLynn; Eiane, Ketil; Riser, Christian Wexels; Slagstad, Dag (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-04-28)
      Calanus species are the main link between primary producers and higher trophic-level organisms in the Barents Sea. The natural mortality rate is an essential parameter for determining the standing stock of Calanus, but it ...
    • Episodic arctic CO2 limitation in the west svalbard shelf 

      Sanz-Martín, Marina; Chierici, Melissa; Mesa, Elena; Carrillo-de-Albornoz, Paloma; Delgado-Huertas, Antonio; Agusti, Susana; Reigstad, Marit; Kristiansen, Svein; Wassmann, Paul; Duarte, Carlos M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The European Sector of the Arctic Ocean is characterized by low CO2 concentrations in seawater during spring and summer, largely due to strong biological uptake driven by extensive plankton blooms in spring. The spring ...
    • Sampling planktonic salmon lice in Norwegian fjords 

      Skardhamar, Jofrid; Fagerli, Margrethe Nilsen; Reigstad, Marit; Sandvik, Anne Dagrun; Bjørn, Pål Arne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Risk of mortality of wild salmon caused by salmon lice is used as an index for managing aquaculture production in Norway and is based on monitoring of lice attached to wild salmonids and modelled concentrations of lice ...
    • Seasonality of the Physical and Biogeochemical Hydrography in the Inflow to the Arctic Ocean Through Fram Strait 

      Randelhoff, Achim; Reigstad, Marit; Chierici, Melissa; Sundfjord, Arild; Ivanov, Vladimir; Cape, Matthias; Vernet, Maria; Tremblay, Jean-Éric; Bratbak, Gunnar; Kristiansen, Svein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
    • Valuing blue carbon changes in the Arctic ocean 

      Armstrong, Claire W.; Foley, Naomi; Slagstad, Dag; Chierici, Melissa; Ellingsen, Ingrid H.; Reigstad, Marit (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The ocean capacity to store carbon is crucial, and currently absorbs about 25% CO2 supply to the atmosphere. The ability to store carbon has an economic value, but such estimates are not common for ocean environments, and ...
