Jørgen Berge

Professor Dr philos
Department of Arctic and Marine Biology

Associate professor at UNIS and NTNU (Centre of Excellence AMOS)
Email: jorgen.berge@uit.no

Jørgen Berge is a professor in marine ecology at UiT The Arctic University of Norway since 2012. He also holds an adjunct professor position at The University Centre in Svalbard and from 2018 at the Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOIS) at NTNU. His research focuses on Arctic marine ecosystems, with a special focus on pelagic processes and how light regulate biological activity throughout all seasons. He is currently operation marine observatories in two fjords on Svalbard (since 2002) and developing new ice-tethered platforms for bio-physical monitoring of ice covered waters.

Bernhard Schartmüller

PhD candidate
Department of Arctic and Marine Biology

Bernhard Schartmüller is a PhD research fellow at the department of Arctic Marine Biology at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. His research focuses on the use of Underwater Hyperspectral Imaging (UHI) for measuring light, algae growth and sea ice fauna under arctic sea ice. Before starting his PhD, he obtained a BSc and MSc degree in industrial engineering from TU Wien, the Vienna University of Technology in Austria.

During his studies Bernhard spent extended periods at the University Centre on Svalbard (UNIS), where he was specializing in Arctic Technology and at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, where he was working on arctic shipping routes.
