RIS 6783

This project will assess the importance of glacial bays as foraging areas for selected top predators and as habitats for cold water fauna in a quantitative manner. This assessment will be based on a combination of archival data and new data collected during this program. In this assessment, future scenarios in relation to the predicted fate of these glacial hotspots in Svalbard will be addressed, in addition to possible compensatory effects via the influences of river mouths and mudflats in areas where glaciers retreat onto land.
