Report Title:Mid-term report for Nordic freshwater ecosystem microcosms pilot study
Activity Acronym:NORCO
Authors:Hevrøy T, Bradshaw C,
Abstract:This mid-term report is an overview of the progress of the NKS-NORCO research project sponsored by the NKS-B program. This project set out to test and create realistic microcosms of ecological systems that can be used as a reference point for future microcosm studies in the field of radioecology, specifically using Nordic freshwater ecosystems. To achieve this we have carried out multiple tests of different potential species, to determine which species remain stable in cultures and when combined in multispecies microcosms. Furthermore, we have tested the impact of different nutrient levels, abiotic parameters and sediments on biotic parameters. This report summarizes our initial results from testing a variety of species and measuring the structural and functional parameters in microcosms not exposed to a stress. These results will aid us in better understanding the natural fluctuations within our microcosms, which will provide a basis for any effects we may witness when microcosms are exposed to radiation.
