Kasper Hancke, PhD

Research Scientist in Marine Biology


Welcome to my website


This is a private website which I am personally responsible for. The site is not part of the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) at which I hold a permanent researcher position. This site represents my personal profile including my research interests, scientific publications, project experience in addition to links and other information regarding my professional interests and activities. Please visit NIVA for my professional website.


My research interests are:


  • Algal and Kelp Ecology and Physiology
  • Biological Oceanography and Marine Biogeochemistry
  • Photobiology and Bio-optics
  • Ecosystem Modeling and Remote Sensing
  • Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Platforms


My research is focused on marine ecosystems and the biological, physical and chemical processes controlling their balance and activity. My interests are on benthic, pelagic, and sympagic (ice associated) ecology and algal physiology, and my core expertise is on the energy flux and element turnover through the lower trophic levels of the food web, in particularly related to photosynthesis and primary production. I have extended field and laboratory experience.
