Overwintering

Check out the second scientific research article of the Sea Patches project.


While spring has arrived many places in the northern hemisphere, and you may be curious as as to how Calanus finmarchicus passed the winter months. This small copepod migrates down to 800 m or more, and spends many months at this depth before coming to surface waters again!


We analyzed data from 11 winters in the Norwegian Sea and found that climatic changes in as far away as the Labrador Sea can determine how many copepods and herrings we can find in the Norwegian Sea.
