The proposed project, PAPPA, focus on the Porsangerfjord. Two different ecosystem models, EwE and NORWECOM.E2E will be used to investigate productivity, food-web dynamics and ecosystem functioning in present and future climate. The main focus will be on the large ecosystem changes that has taken place in the fjord over the last decades, their possible causes, and to what extent the present situation represents a new and irreversible regime. The models will also be used to quantify primary and secondary production and to assess whether this has changed in the past or will change in the future.
