Section: Marin biologi
Trine Bekkby is as a research scientist at Professor level at NIVA, Section for Marine biology, Research Centre for Coast and Ocean. Key qualifications are marine benthic and coastal ecology, variation in space (incl. environmental conditions) and changes in time (incl. effects of climate and human space use changes) - particularly focusing on habitat building species (such as kelp forests and seagrass meadows). The main research focus is on mapping, spatial analyses, GIS and distribution modelling; classification and value assessment - both at local, regional, national and international scale. Bekkby has been working as a researcher since 2001 and has been leading several national and international projects. She has several supervision, teaching and evaluation tasks. She is member of the ICES Working Group on Marine Habitat Mapping and the Norwegian Blue Forest Network (NBFN). Bekkby is the scientific coordinator of the National Program for Mapping of Biodiversity - Coast (since 2009, funded by Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries and Ministry of Climate and Environment) and other mapping projects, is work package and task leader in MERCES - Marine Ecosystem Restoration in Changing European Seas (EU H2020 SC5-7), project member and national contact point on EMODnet Seabed Habitats (mapping marine habitats in Europe) and work package leader on KELPPRO - Kelp industrial production: Potential impacts on coastal ecosystems (Funded by the Research Council of Norway).
