• Changes in Sea-Ice Protist Diversity With Declining Sea Ice in the Arctic Ocean From the 1980s to 2010s 

      Hop, Haakon; Vihtakari, Mikko; Bluhm, Bodil; Assmy, Philipp; Poulin, Michel; Gradinger, Rolf; Peeken, Ilka; von Quillfeldt, Cecilie; Olsen, Lasse Mork; Zhitina, Ludmila; Melnikov, Igor A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The large declines in Arctic sea-ice age and extent over the last decades could have altered the diversity of sea-ice associated unicellular eukaryotes (referred to as sea-ice protists). A time series from the Russian ...
    • Feeding at the front line: Interannual variation in the use of glacier fronts by foraging black-legged kittiwakes 

      Bertrand, Philip; Strøm, Hallvard; Bêty, Joël; Steen, Harald; Kohler, Jack; Vihtakari, Mikko; Van Pelt, Ward; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Hop, Haakon; Harris, Stephanie M.; Patrick, Samantha C.; Assmy, Philipp; Wold, Anette; Duarte, Pedro; Moholdt, Geir; Descamps, Sébastien (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Tidewater glacier fronts can represent important foraging areas for Arctic predators. Their ecological importance is likely to change in a warmer Arctic. Their profitability and use by consumers are expected to vary in ...
    • Ice-Associated Amphipods in a Pan-Arctic Scenario of Declining Sea Ice 

      Hop, Haakon; Vihtakari, Mikko; Bluhm, Bodil; Daase, Malin; Gradinger, Rolf; Melnikov, Igor A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Sea-ice macrofauna includes ice amphipods and benthic amphipods, as well as mysids. Amphipods are important components of the sympagic food web, which is fuelled by the production of ice algae. Data on the diversity of ...
    • Pan-Arctic suitable habitat model for Greenland halibut 

      Vihtakari, Mikko; Hordoir, Robinson; Treble, Margret A; Bryan, Meaghan D.; Elvarsson, Bjarki; Nogueira, Adriana; Hallfredsson, Elvar H.; Christiansen, Jørgen Schou; Albert, Ole Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Deep-sea marine fishes support important fisheries but estimates of their distributions are often incomplete as the data behind them may reflect fishing practices, access rights, or political boundaries, rather than actual ...
    • 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 ...
