• A 1-Dimensional Sympagic–Pelagic–Benthic Transport Model (SPBM): Coupled Simulation of Ice, Water Column, and Sediment Biogeochemistry, Suitable for Arctic Applications 

      Yakubov, Shamil; Wallhead, Philip; Protsenko, Elizaveta; Yakushev, Evgeniy; Pakhomova, Svetlana; Brix, Holger (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Marine biogeochemical processes can strongly interact with processes occurring in adjacent ice and sediments. This is especially likely in areas with shallow water and frequent ice cover, both of which are common in the ...
    • Biogeochemical consequences of an oxygenated intrusion into an anoxic fjord 

      Pakhomova, Svetlana; Braaten, Hans Fredrik Veiteberg; Yakushev, Evgeny; Skei, Jens (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Background: This paper is based on the studies of the biogeochemical structure of the water column in the anoxic Fjord Hunnbunn (south-eastern Norway) performed in 2009, 2011 and 2012. This Fjord is an enclosed basin of ...
    • Microplastic variability in subsurface water from the Arctic to Antarctica 

      Pakhomova, Svetlana; Berezina, Anfisa; Lusher, Amy L.; Zhdanov, Igor; Silvestrova, Ksenia; Zavialov, Peter; van Bavel, Bert; Yakushev, Evgeniy (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Comparative investigations of microplastic (MP) occurrence in the global ocean are often hampered by the application of different methods. In this study, the same sampling and analytical approach was applied during five ...
    • Microplastics distribution in the Eurasian Arctic is affected by Atlantic waters and Siberian rivers 

      Yakushev, Evgeniy; Gebruk, Anna; Osadchiev, Alexander; Pakhomova, Svetlana; Lusher, Amy; Berezina, Anfisa; van Bavel, Bert; Vorozheikina, Elena; Chernykh, Denis; Kolbasova, Glafira; Razgon, Ilia; Semiletov, Igor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Plastic pollution is globally recognised as a threat to marine ecosystems, habitats, and wildlife, and it has now reached remote locations such as the Arctic Ocean. Nevertheless, the distribution of microplastics in the ...
    • Mikroplastpartikler inn til og ut fra Bekkelaget renseanlegg gjennom ett år 

      Vogelsang, Christian; Kristiansen, Trond; Singdahl-Larsen, Cecilie; Buenaventura, Nina; Pakhomova, Svetlana; Eidsvoll, David Pettersen; Staalstrøm, André; Beylich, Bjørnar André (NIVA-rapport;7541-2020, Research report, 2020)
      På oppdrag for Vann- og avløpsetaten i Oslo kommune er det gjennomført en detaljert kartlegging av partikler av mikroplast i innløpet til Bekkelaget renseanlegg under ulike forhold i løpet av et helt år, og hvor det blir ...
    • Modeling Nickel Leaching from Abandoned Mine Tailing Deposits in Jøssingfjorden 

      Pakhomova, Svetlana; Yakushev, Evgeniy; Schaanning, Morten (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Underwater disposal of mine tailings in lakes and seas has been considered favorable due to the geochemical stability obtained during long-term storage in anoxic sediments. Sulfides are stable in the ore; however, oxidation ...
    • Modeling the influence of eutrophication and redox conditions on mercury cycling at the sediment-water interface in the Berre Lagoon 

      Pakhomova, Svetlana; Yakushev, Evgeny; Protsenko, Elizaveta; Rigaud, Sylvain; Cossa, Daniel; Knoery, Joel; Couture, Raoul-Marie; Radakovitch, Olivier; Yakubov, Shamil; Krzeminska, Dominika; Newton, Alice (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      This study presents a specifically designed Mercury module in a coupled benthic-pelagic reactive-transport model - Bottom RedOx Model (BROM) that allows to study mercury (Hg) biogeochemistry under different conditions. ...
    • Monitoring of microplastics in Danish marine waters using the Oslo-Kiel ferry as a ship-of-opportunity 

      van Bavel, Bert; Lusher, Amy; Jaccard, Pierre Franqois; Pakhomova, Svetlana; Singdahl-Larsen, Cecilie; Andersen, Jesper Harbo; Murray, Ciaran Joseph (NIVA-rapport;7524, Research report, 2020)
      The EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive require that EU Member States establish appropriate strategies and sampling programmes for microplastic in the marine environment. We report the results of a two-tiered pilot study ...
    • Polymer Type Identification of Marine Plastic Litter Using a Miniature Near-Infrared Spectrometer (MicroNIR) 

      Pakhomova, Svetlana; Zhdanov, Igor; van Bavel, Bert (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Plastic pollution in the marine environment has turned into an important research topic in recent decades. Until recently, studies were often based on visual assessment only, which is not enough to draw any conclusion about ...
