BREATHE
Bottom-sea ice Respiration and n
utrient Exchanges Assessed for THE Arctic

The BREATHE project brings together researchers from Norway, Denmark and Canada to study sea ice microbiology and biogeochemistry.

 

It will quantify the effective metabolism of sea ice; comprehensively summarizing how the ice BREATHEs, and thereafter, its dynamic role in O2 and carbon cycling within changing marine ecosystems. Through in situ, laboratory and model-based approaches the project will:​

  • Characterize turbulence-driven nutrient supply for ice algal growth

  • Define the respiratory costs for algae and bacteria living in sea ice 

  • Improve the accuracy of ice algal production measurements in a time

        of rapid environmental change
