Ice-ocean interactions and ecosystem dynamics in the Arctic Marine Paleoecology Group

This cross-institutional research group (Globe-GEUS partnership) works at the intersection of Marine Ecology, Paleoceanography, and Paleogenetics to decipher long-term environmental changes in the Arctic region and their impacts on marine ecosystems, with focus on Greenland.
