Scientific research on melting Arctic sea ice, summer 2012
Dr. Philipp Assmy, a Norwegian Polar Institute biological oceanographer and plankton ecologist, prepares ice algae samples for analysis during an experiment involving timed incubation of the samples beneath a large floe of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. The aim of the experiment was to assess biological productivity (i.e., ice-algae growth rates) under different ice types and thicknesses, and in varying light conditions.
