Tyler Kohler and Jakub Žárský have been awarded a Research Council of Norway Arctic Field Grant (AFG) to study how sediment origin and time since glaciation impact subglacial carbon characteristics and corresponding microbial community composition in Svalbard glaciers, as part of CryoEco’s subglacial carbon project. In August, Tyler, Jakub, and our Norwegian colleague Jacob Yde will travel to Svalbard to sample sediment at the terminus of several glaciers on the Bohemanflya Peninsula to add to our growing collection of Arctic subglacial sediments and to help improve our understanding of the functioning of the subglacial ecosystems.
EotC will be back.
