Lauren von Berg, Class of 2020, publishes research from PEI internship studying Antarctic sea ice

Lauren von Berg, who received her bachelor’s degree in computer science on June 2, is first author of a peer-reviewed paper based on her Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) internship studying the role of Antarctic sea ice in regulating the growth of the tiny algae known as phytoplankton.

Published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the study found that the retreat of sea ice can significantly influence phytoplankton activity, and, thus, the amount of carbon dioxide the organisms can remove from the atmosphere.
