Marine biological research at Trondhjem Biological Station (TBS)

Contemporary marine biological research at Trondhjem Biological Station (TBS) reflects the scientific fields covered by the scientific staff of four professors with special competence on planktonic plants and animals, marine ecophysiology, bioresources, remote sensing and underwater robotics, biodiversity, fisheries biology and population genetics.

The research projects are mostly cooperative with international or national partners, including partners from other faculties at NTNU. Current themes of international concern like climate change, loss of biodiversity, and sustainable resource management are important elements in the research framework at TBS. Utilising new data-collecting technology as well as classical time series of biotic and abiotic parametres, the pulse of aquatic ecosystems in both local and remote areas on the planet are monitored.
