Nansen Legacy workshops
A major activity of the Nansen Legacy this spring were several workshops on dedicated scientific topics:
WS 1: Based on the AUV and physical oceanography data collected during the ocean process cruise in 2018, this workshop addressed how technology could further be used in oceanographic studies. Researchers from NTNU, UiT, UNIS and IMR attended the workshop.
WS 2: After two successful physical process cruises north of Svalbard in summer and autumn 2018, the oceanographic science teams at UiB and UNIS met for investigating oceanic fronts, conditions for upwelling, turbulent mixing, and upper ocean boundary layer exchanges.
WS 3: The first workshop on pollution studies in the Nansen Legacy was held with participants from UiO, NTNU and NPI. The workshop served for discussions on how food web changes during the year affect contaminant uptake, accumulation and distribution within organisms and through food webs.
WS 4: Extensive ecological experiments are planned for the upcoming seasonal cruises. All scientists involved from UiT, NTNU, APN, NPI, IMR, UiO and UNIS met therefore in order to synchronize experimental approaches and ensure cross-institutional cooperation on the experiments.
Planned workshops for fall 2019.
