Arctic Aquatic Ecosystems
The student will learn about the processes, structures and pathways in different Arctic aquatic environments affected by snow and glacial melt, e.g. ocean, fjords, streams and lakes. During the course, the student will also learn about how the structure and function of Arctic aquatic ecosystems are influenced by physical and chemical parameters e.g. temperatures, freshwater input (salinity), nutrients levels, light conditions and ice cover. Furthermore, the course will provide the students the background knowledge to discuss how future climatic changes in those parameters will influence different Arctic aquatic ecosystems. Finally, the student will get an introduction into the processes leading to management advice of living resources in Greenland.
