This video shows how we collect samples of plankton found in the Arctic under sea ice. We do scientific research on algae and other organisms that live inside of sea ice and we try to understand the role of this unique community of organisms in the larger Arctic food web. For example, we are interested in whether plankton under the ice are feeding on algae and other materials released from the ice. In turn, the plankton are connected to larger organisms. Local people, like our Bear Guard Arne, understand these connections and their importance.
