Sea Ice Algae in the Arctic Ocean - Field report from the LOMROG III expedition
Our research team studies sea ice algae, microscopic algae invisible to the naked eye that live in sea ice. Lars and Brian are participating in LOMROG III as one of the Danish associated projects, investigating the distribution of these algae, which are restricted to the bottom few millimetres of the ice.

LOMROG III Expedition reaches the North Pole
The North Pole was covered by 10/10 of sea ice and Oden had to break through heavy sea ice, especially during the last few nautical miles. Heavy sea ice was encountered during much of the journey on the way to the North Pole.

A total of 66 crew members and scientists are onboard Oden, which is a 108-m-long polar icebreaker with a power of 25.000 hp. The main objective of the expedition is to acquire the necessary documentation to extend the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles according to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

In addition to the continental shelf project, several Danish and Swedish science projects are attached to the LOMROG III expedition.

Sea Ice Temperature - Field report from the LOMROG III expedition

Temperature of the snow surface and the snow-ice interface are vital parameters to understand the freezing and melting of sea ice. Measurements of these temperatures are not available through traditional observations, but only as proxy measurements from a scarcely distributed Arctic observation network.

The search for bioactive Arctic marine bacteria - Field report from the LOMROG III expedition
The icebreaker Oden is north of the 89th latitude and solid ice covers the sea. Some of the geologists on board the Oden are retrieving a sample of the sea bed using a technique called 'piston coring' and while their interest concerns the sediment deposits which make up the seabed itself, my interest is the microorganisms which have made a home in the Arctic mud.
