Shadows on Ice

by Zora Zittier

PhD Student


During my PhD studies I had the possibility to participate in the EPOCA Arctic Campaign 2009 in Ny Ålesund, Svalbard. There, I investigated the synergistic impact of ocean acidification and temperature increase on the physiology of arctic spider crabs. It is fascinating how many structures, compositions and illuminations can be found in such a ‘white’ environment. The picture shows the shadows of my colleagues and me standing on a bridge above a river that flows beneath the ice.
