  • The Fram Strait Arctic Outflow Observatory

    Monitoring This long-term project monitors the ocean currents and sea ice leaving the Arctic Ocean through Fram Strait. The project maintains a mooring array which provides a continuous, high-resolution time series of temperature, salinity, velocity and sea ice thickness measurements in the Arctic …

  • Norwegian-U.S. Scientific IPY Traverse of East Antarctica (2007-2009) (IPY Traverse)

    Research Joint Norwegian - U.S. scientific ground traverse in East Antarctica. The field expedition involved scientific investigations along two overland traverses: one going from the Troll Station in Dronning Maud Land to Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in 2007-2008; and a return traverse by a …

  • Norwegian Young sea ICE cruise (N-ICE2015)

    Research Primary objective: The objective of N-ICE2015 is to understand how the rapid shift to a younger and thinner sea ice regime in the Arctic affects energy fluxes, sea ice dynamics and the ice-associated ecosystem, as well as local and global climate. …

  • N-ICE2015: Ecosystem dynamics in a high-Arctic pack ice environment

    Research The main objective of this project is to quantify the links between physical mechanisms with biogeochemical processes in the Arctic Ocean mixed layer and sea ice, towards a better understanding of the effects of the thinner ice cover on the pack ice ecosystem.
