Our project

The Arctos project aims to study the effects of climate change on benthic organisms and communities. It consists in three main activities: 1) running mesocosm experiments on benthic communities, 2) monitoring the environmental parameters and the biodiversity in the fjord, and 3) assessing in situ the metabolism of benthic communities.
