Marine life changes as a result of melting Antarctic ice

South Pole researcher is awarded PhD on Antarctica Day
23 November 2017

The composition of unicellular marine life is changing as a result of melting Antarctic sea ice. This influences the entire food chain and deep-sea carbon storage – and thus the climate. Patrick Rozema (University of Groningen) studied this phenomenon during two field seasons on Antarctica. On 1 December – Antarctica Day – he will defend his PhD thesis.
