Evaluating primary and secondary production in an Arctic Ocean void of summer sea ice: An experimental simulation approach
Abstract The gross primary (GPP) and secondary production in the Arctic Basin, Eurasian shelves and the Barents Sea were investigated through the physically–biologically coupled, 3D SINMOD model withExpand

Benthic macrofauna and productivity regimes in the Barents Sea — Ecological implications in a changing Arctic
article i nfo Benthic faunal assemblages were analysed from 47 stations in the central and southern parts of the Barents Sea, together with sedimentary and water column parameters, daily ice recordsExpand

Impact of climatic change on the biological production in the Barents Sea
The Barents Sea is a high latitude ecosystem and is an important nursery and feeding area for commercial fish stocks such as cod, capelin and herring. There is a large inter-annual variability bothExpand

Intra-regional comparison of productivity, carbon flux and ecosystem composition within the northern Barents Sea
Abstract We assess inter-annual and spatial variability and pathways of carbon flow within lower trophic levels and between plankton and benthos. Simulations were performed of gross primaryExpand

The future of Arctic benthos: Expansion, invasion, and biodiversity
Abstract One of the logical predictions for a future Arctic characterized by warmer waters and reduced sea-ice is that new taxa will expand or invade Arctic seafloor habitats. Specific predictionsExpand

Capelin migrations and climate change – a modelling analysis
The capelin is a small pelagic fish that performs long distance migrations. It is a key species in the Barents Sea ecosystem and its distribution is highly climate dependent. Here we use anExpand

Estimation of primary production in the Arctic Ocean using ocean colour remote sensing and coupled physical-biological models: strengths, limitations and how they compare
Abstract Over the last decade, several studies have reported a significant increase in marine primary production of the Arctic Ocean due mainly to a decrease in the extent of the icepack. Given theExpand

Modification of water masses in the Barents Sea and its coupling to ice dynamics: a model study
The physical and biological environment of the Barents Sea is characterised by large variability on a wide range of scales. Results from a numerical ocean model, SINMOD, are presented showing thatExpand

Potential impact of climate change on ecosystems of the Barents Sea Region
The EU project BALANCE (Global Change Vulnerabilities in the Barents region: Linking Arctic Natural Resources, Climate Change and Economies) aims to assess vulnerability to climate change in theExpand

Benthic fauna and functional traits along a Polar Front transect in the Barents Sea – Advancing tools for ecosystem-scale assessments
Abstract One of the challenges for large-scale, long-term ecological assessments lies in the integration of faunal datasets. A comparison was made between various ways of analysing benthicExpand
