The theoretical content of the course includes an introduction to the abiotic conditions (currents, freshwater input, salinity and nutrients) in the Arctic marine areas and how they influence species composition, population dynamics, productivity and ecosystem processes. In addition, the students will be introduced to climate change in the Arctic and current knowledge of the impacts of warming on the Arctic marine ecosystem. Finally, the students will have hands on experience with planning and conducting field studies on selected components of the marine ecosystem.
