Section for Ocean Ecology and Climate

Former organisational unit. 31/12/2012.


Organisation profile

The research is focused on the interaction between the physical, chemical and biological processes in the marine environment – specifically how climatic changes in the marine environment affect the structure and function of marine food webs. A central theme of the section’s research is to establish a mechanistic understanding of interactions within the marine environment. Investigations take off at the base of the food web – primary and secondary producers – where physical factors have their most direct impact, and then consider the impact on higher tropic levels such as fish. This research covers biological and ecological processes in the ocean over a range of scales, from individuals to populations and on to the ecosystems. A specific area of research is ecosystem changes in the Arctic seas.
