Science / project plan

The overall aim is to determine the extent changing sea ice condition affects the surface fluxes over different marine  surfaces within a high Arctic fjord system. We will examine to what extent temperature influences the surface flux of carbon, and other climatically important gases, in addition to an on-going focus onto the effects of sea ice life stages on the surface exchange of carbon containing gases within the marine cryosphere.
