Veien fra Atlanterhavet til Polhavet http://www.framshorts.com/video/737/ Tue, 11 Oct 2016 11:18:23 +0000 http://www.framshorts.com/?post_type=video&p=737 Varmt vann som strømmer fra Atlanterhavet og inn i Polhavet rundt Svalbard spiller en viktig rolle for isdekket og økosystemet i området. Gjennom denne animasjonsfilmen forteller vi historien om hvordan vannmassene finner veien nordover, hvilke endringer som skjer underveis, og hvordan dette strømssystemet er viktig for klimaet i Arktis.

Plankton munching microplastics http://www.framshorts.com/video/plankton-munching-microplastics/ Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:10:56 +0000 http://www.framshorts.com/?post_type=video&p=615 Even the tiniest animals in the sea are exposed to the global environmental challenge of marine litter. These little creatures are filter feeders, and indiscriminately feed on whatever is around. Microplastics in the oceans accumulate POPS, and these might then be accumulated up through the food chain when the plankton is eaten by larger animals.

From sea urchin deserts to rich kelp forests http://www.framshorts.com/video/from-sea-urchin-deserts-to-rich-kelp-forests/ Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:41:40 +0000 http://www.framshorts.com/?post_type=video&p=584 Imagine if some calamity were to destroy your favourite forest; if the rich environment that harboured animals, birds and insects were to vanish. Something very similar happened a few decades ago in the ocean off the coast of Norway. But with time, the undersea forest is recovering. Scientists from NIVA are watching the process closely.
