Coldregionscience is a website describing my research in the High Arctic and Antarctica. Focus is given here to the influence of changing climate on hydrology, biogeochemistry and microbial activity in snow and ice.
DR AGA NOWAK
I am an environmental scientist specialising in hydrology and biogeochemistry of Polar Regions. My research focuses on investigation of short- as well as long-term effects of climate change on the terrestrial and marine ecosystems in the Arctic and Antarctica. Currently, I am the researcher on the BIOICE project, where we investigate Blue Ice Oases of microbial life on the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
