PEANUTS

Primary productivity driven by escalating Arctic nutrient fluxes?

  • Dr Yueng-Djern Lenn

    Co-lead investigator, Bangor University

    I am a polar physical oceanographer and my interests lie in understanding the physical processes integral to ocean overturning that impact climate in the polar oceans. As the co-lead investigator in the PEANUTS project,  I am responsible for managing the project as a whole by facilitating integration between the different themes and work programs and leading the final synthesis of the different project components to ensure we answer the key questions raised by PEANUTS’s main hypothesis.

  • Dr Markus Janout

    Co-lead investigator, Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI)

    I am a physical oceanographer at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Germany, and co-investigator of the PEANUTS project. My work mainly focuses on oceanography, sea ice, and ecosystem processes on high latitude shelf and slope regions. In recent years, my focus shifted to the Eurasian Arctic, in an attempt to better understand issues such as ocean circulation, freshwater variability, water mass formation or shelf-basin exchange between the Siberian shelves and the Arctic basin. In PEANUTS, we will investigate vertical nutrient fluxes and their regional and seasonal variability, and assess how these may change in a changing Arctic Ocean.
