Stig Falk-Petersen is a research scientist at Akvaplan-niva and Professor II at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. He is a high profiled polar scientist with a long record of successful studies in marine research covering marine ecology, physical oceanography, lipid chemistry and effects of climate change on marine systems. This work has resulted in a high number of publications from Polar Regions such as northern coast of Norway, Antarctica, Svalbard waters, the Arctic Ocean and Canadian Arctic.

Haakon Hop is a senior research scientist at the Norwegian Polar Institute, Tromsø, and Professor II at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Arctic SIZE. His research focuses on broader aspects of Arctic marine ecology with emphasis on pelagic (zooplankton), sympagic (ice-associated) and hard-bottom fauna, and Arctic fishes, such as polar cod (Boreogadus saida). He has worked on marine ecosystem structure (stable isotopes), energy flow (lipids), and bioaccumulation of pollutants in Arctic marine food webs. Much work involves integration of physical and biological data from multidisciplinary research carried out in the Arctic Ocean, the Marginal Ice Zone and Svalbard fjords. He applies scientific diving to collect samples from below sea ice and in fjords, and he currenlty leads Norwegian Scientific Divers (NSD).
Randi Ingvaldsen is a senior scientist at Institute of Marine Research, Bergen, and Professor II at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Arctic SIZE. She is a physical oceanographer with a broad research interests in physical oceanography and ecology. Her focus area is the Barents Sea and the region west and north of Svalbard, and she is working with oceanography and climate variability, as well as on climate impact on zooplankton, fish, shrimp, benthos, and the overall Barents Sea ecosystem. Ingvaldsen is currently leading a IMR strategic initiative “The Arctic Ocean Ecosystem (SI_ARCTIC)” where overall objective is to develop a knowledgebase on the state and variability of the present and future ecosystem in the area north of Svalbard.
