• Arctic Observations Identify Phytoplankton Community Composition as Driver of Carbon Flux Attenuation 

      Wiedmann, Ingrid; Ceballos-Romero, E.; Villa-Alfageme, M.; Renner, Angelika; Dybwad, Christine; van der Jagt, Helga; Svensen, Camilla; Assmy, Philipp; Wiktor, Josef; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Różańska‐Pluta, M.; Iversen, Morten H. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The attenuation coefficient b is one of the most common ways to describe how strong the carbon flux is attenuated throughout the water column. Therefore, b is an essential input variable in many carbon flux and climate ...
    • 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 ...
    • Leads in Arctic pack ice enable early phytoplankton blooms below snow-covered sea ic

    • 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 ...
    • Tidewater glaciers and bedrock characteristics control the phytoplankton growth environment in a fjord in the arctic 

      Halbach, Laura; Vihtakari, Mikko; Duarte, Pedro; Everett, Alistair; Granskog, Mats; Hop, Haakon; Kauko, Hanna Maria; Kristiansen, Svein; Myhre, Per Inge; Pavlov, Alexey K.; Pramanik, Ankit; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Torsvik, Tomas; Wiktor, Józef Maria; Wold, Anette; Wulff, Angela; Steen, Harald; Assmy, Philipp (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Meltwater discharge from tidewater glaciers impacts the adjacent marine environment. Due to the global warming, tidewater glaciers are retreating and will eventually terminate on land. Yet, the mechanisms through which ...
