Johanna Myrseth Aarflot
Currently, I work on the CoastRisk project where the main objective is to develop and implement an Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) framework for Norwegian coastal ecosystems. This work also involves enhancing our current understanding of ecosystems along the Norwegian coast and adjacent fjords, and identifying present and future pressures to these systems.
I am also contributing to the modelling work in the Nansen Legacy project (www.arvenetternansen.no) research focus 4 (The future Barents Sea), where we aim to assess potential effects of climate warming on the lower trophic levels in the Barents Sea.
