Polarexpedition: Das Fraunhofer IBMT auf der Suche nach Schneealgen

Schneealgen in Kultur

Seit mehr als 20 Jahren stehen kälteangepasste Süßwasseralgen, die sogenannten kryophilen Schneealgen, im Mittelpunkt des Interesses einer Forschergruppe des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Biomedizinische Technik IBMT unter der Leitung von Dr. Thomas Leya. Am 31. Juli 2013 bricht ein Team aus fünf Experten, darunter Biophysiker, Geologen und Pflanzenphysiologen zu einer vierwöchigen Expedition nach Spitzbergen auf. In diesem Jahr kommt modernste Technik zum Einsatz. Seit Jahren untersuchte und neue Regionen mit Schneealgenbesiedlung werden auf dem Eis mit einem der modernsten Flugsysteme, einem achtmotorigen Helikopter der Firma Ascending Technologies GmbH, kartiert.
