Christopher Krembs N/A N/A Oceanographer

Exopolymeric substances (EPS), secreted in the form of mucous slime by aquaticmicroorganisms, are known to play important roles in marine ecosystems. We investigate their potential to alter the microstructure of the sea-ice habitat and to serve as cryoprotectants for microorganisms dwelling therein. The research is motivated by our findings of surprisingly high concentrations of EPS in wintertime Arctic sea ice, in combination with microscopicobservations implying potential benefits to the survival of bacteria and microalgae at very low temperatures (-15¡C and below) in the pore system of sea ice.

-Co-investigator of two projects which have become integral parts of the Arctic Observing Network: the Ice-Tethered Profiler (ITP) project and the Beaufort Gyre Observing System (BGOS). The success of these efforts over the past 6 years (over 30 ITPs deployed with the drifting ice and over 5 years of time series mooring data acquired under the ice pack) has lead to the continuation of these studies for another 5 years. These data support studies of physical and biological ocean processes, facilitates numerical model initialization and validation, and have stimulated general interest in Arctic science issues. Research and understanding that builds on these observations is contributing to a better appreciation of the Arctic's role in the earth's evolving climate system.
