Arctic SIZE Among the Vineyards

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Arctic SIZE researcher Rolf Gradinger takes some Arctic chill to his German home village. Amidst vineyards in an all-time hottest summer, he has an easy time convincing the locals that the Arctic has a role to play in keeping Earth’s climate balanced. Most have a harder time imagining the existence of a vast amount of biodiversity of organisms inside sea ice brine channels – when all that usually makes it to the media is polar bears and seals. Those giants wouldn’t be there without the tiny creatures Gradinger and the Arctic Size team are studying.
