Dark research in the public spotlight!

This year’s January campaign on Svalbard was our sixth consecutive year of polar night research. Since our first expedition to Ny-Ålesund in 2010, we have spent large parts of January on Svalbard every year since 2012 - the first years we were mainly based on the RV Helmer Hanssen, whereas from 2014 our main activity have been divided between Ny-Ålesund and onboard Helmer Hanssen. So also this year, when Bodil Bluhm lead the group onboard HH and Jørgen / Geir were in charge of the campaign in Ny-Ålesund - the former in association with the UiT course BIO-8510 and the latter with UNIS course AB334. And despite a constant and intense focus on the polar night from a very high number of students and researchers during the last eight years, there are still immense gaps in knowledge that needs to be filled. And unexpected discoveries seems to line up, just waiting to be brought out of the darkness and into the public spotlight - so also this year:
