SNOWFALLS IN THE OCEAN

Dead algae and zooplankton remains  sink to the bottom of the oceans as marine snow, exporting large amounts of CO2 to the deep sea. In the Fram Strait between Greenland and Svalbard, scientists study the consequences of Arctic sea ice retreat for marine snowfalls.

WHAT BLOOMS ON THE GLACIERS

The margins of the Greenland ice sheet are darkening as ice algae are conquering the glaciers. As a result, the ice absorbs more solar radiation and melts ever faster faster. In the south of the island, an expedition is investigating the phenomenon .

THREATENED BARRIER IN ANTARCTICA

Ice shelves are the floating extensions of glaciers and slow the flow of glacial ice into the ocean. In the Antarctic Weddell Sea, a team of researchers is investigating whether warm deep water is threatening the world's thickest ice shelf and could cause sea levels to rise further.
