Sea ice algae bloom in the dark

2018.02.07Researchers from Aarhus University have measured a new world record: Small ice algae on the underside of the Arctic sea ice live and grow at a light level corresponding to only 0.02% of the light at the surface of the ice. Algae are the primary component of the Arctic food web and produce food far earlier in the year than previously thought.

Shallow lakes are potential methane factories

Poul Due Jensen Foundation pumps DKK 40 million into water technology research at Aarhus University

2018.01.23With four donations totalling more than DKK 40 million, Aarhus University's new Centre for Water Technology (WATEC) is off to a flying start and headed for a place among the international elite within the field of research into sustainable water cycles. This is largest sum ever donated to water research by the Poul Due Jensen Foundation.

Heat loss from the Earth triggers ice sheet slide towards the sea

2018.01.23In North-East Greenland, researchers have measured the loss of heat that comes up from the interior of the Earth. This enormous area is a geothermal “hot spot” that melts the ice sheet from below and triggers the sliding of glaciers towards the sea.
