  • Ocean - sea ice - atmosphere teleconnections between the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic during the Holocene (OCTEL)

    Research The OCTEL project aims to explore the ocean, sea-ice and atmosphere interactions both in the Southern Ocean and the northern North Atlantic in order to assess the manifestation of interhemispheric teleconnections and their influence on climate during last 11 700 years (the Holocene) with a …

  • 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 …

  • Kunnskapsgrunnlaget for forvaltningsplanen Sentral-Spitsbergen

    Assessment Norsk Polarintistutt har i sitt tildelingsbrev for 2016 fra Klima - og miljødepartementet fått i oppdrag å lage kunnskapsgrunnlag for forvaltningsplanen Sentral-Spitsbergen. …

  • 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: Atmosphere

    Research The objective of this project is to understand how atmospheric forcing affects the sea ice mass balance and dynamics in a thinner first-year sea ice regime.

  • N-ICE2015: Sea ice dynamics

    Research Sea-ice drift determines the dynamic part of the Arctic sea-ice mass balance, i.e., ice export and dynamic growth. High-resolution observations of sea ice dynamics are needed to (1) gain better understanding of small scale deformation processes, (2) evaluate and improve satellite derived …

  • Arctic climate system study of ocean, sea ice and glaciers interactions in Svalbard area (AWAKE2)

    Education Being a link land and ocean, Arctic fjords are highly vulnerable to warming and are expected to exhibit the earliest environmental changes resulting from anthropogenic impacts on climate. …

  • Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic - contribution Barents (AACA)

    Monitoring The Arctic has experienced substantial climate change and during recent decades Arctic climate change and effects thereof have accelerated. …

  • Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP)

    Assessment AMAP is mandated: • To monitor and assess the status of the Arctic region with respect to pollution and climate change issues. • To document levels and trends, pathways and processes, and effects on ecosystems and humans, and propose actions to reduce associated threats for consideration …

  • N-ICE2015: Sea ice

    Research Core observations will be regular mapping of the snow and ice cover thickness and physical properties at the study site. Both temporal and spatial aspects will be investigated.
