Mare Incognitum at the Arctic Change conference in Ottawa (Canada)

Arctos researchers were very well represented at the recent Arctic Change conference in Ottawa (Canada). In total, the conference gathers more than 1300 people, with Norway being the third largest delegation behind Germany and USA. Arctos were represented by one plenary keynote speaker in the opening session (Professor P Wassmann), and two scientific sessions. The conference was hosted by ArcticNet, a network of excellence with whom Arctos has very close ties. One of the scientific sessions were focused on the polar night and the research carried out within four Mare Incognitum projects; Circa, Marine Night, Cleopatra 2 and SpitsEco. A total of six talks were given in this session (PDFs of the talks below):
