Public talks in Polar Museum. Photo: J. BergeMore than 90 people showed up for the public lectures and guided tour around the polar night exhibition that was arranged at the Polarmuseet in Tromsø last Wednesday. The event was a coordinated event between Arktisk Forening and the Polarmuseet, and marked the last week of the polar night exhibition in Tromsø. It also coincided with the publication of a major paper from the Marine Night team - (Unexpected Levels of Biological Activity during the Polar Night Offer New Perspectives on a Warming Arctic) published in Current Biology. Both events attracted lots of attention in the media, locally (iTromsø) for the exhibition and internationally for the paper (BBC news). The paper once and for all marks the death of the old myth of biological quiescence during the polar night!
