Blog from the Field

By on Friday, September 15th, 2017

Thanks to INTERACT funding, I have just completed my fieldwork at Finse Alpine Research Station, southern Norway. My focus was investigating the response of river ecosystem functioning (decomposition, respiration) to reducing glacial influence. Myself and my supervisors visited sampling sites across the Hardangervidda Plateau twice this summer, incubating cellulose decomposition assays and collecting stream cobbles for ex-situ benthic respiration incuabtion experiments. For more information on this work, and to see some photographs of this amazing place, check out my blog here: Work your way from the bottom of the page up, to see our fieldwork in sequence. This was the final fieldwork season of my PhD…to the lab!
