Next, far north fjord for 'Oceania', is Magdalenefjorden and Smeerenburgfjorden.

IO PAN has just completed project ALKEKONGE (Response of marine and terrestrial ecosystems to climate changes in Arctic - links between physical environment, biodiversity of zooplankton and seabird populations).

It was interdisciplinary project supported by a grant from Norway through the Norwegian Financial Mechanism (http://www.iopan.gda.pl/projects/Alkekonge).

The main objective of the project was to estimate the impact of climate warming on Arctic zooplankton communities (Calanus), little auks (Alle alle) and their physical environment.

This year some research, as already started in this project, are continued in some respects by our ecologists.
