  • Ridges - Safe HAVens for ice-associated Flora and Fauna in a Seasonally ice-covered Arctic OCean (HAVOC)

    Research The HAVOC project aims to understand the role of sea-ice ridges, that is sea ice that has been pushed together and formed deep keels and high sails from blocks of ice, as a habitat for the sea-ice associated ecosystem in the central Arctic Ocean. …

  • 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. …

  • Ice, Climate, Economics – Arctic Research on Change (ICE-ARC)

    Research ICE-ARC (Ice, Climate, Economics – Arctic Research on Change) will look into the current and future changes in Arctic sea ice – both from changing atmospheric and oceanic conditions. …

  • 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. …

  • Geoscience Atlas of Svalbard

    Education Geoscience Atlas of Svalbard is an outreach project that aims to provide information about geosciences in Svalbard to a broad group of potential users.

  • TideWater Glaciers: function and importance for Arctic wildlife (TW-ICE)

    Research Tidewater glaciers creates a local arctic environment in front of the glacier. Glacier calving creates large and small icebergs that serve as platforms for resting seals. The icebergs together with the glacier front itself cools the seawater creating a local arctic environment. …

  • 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 …

  • Long-term variability and trends in the Atlantic Water inflow region (A-TWAIN)

    Research Water that flows northward from the Atlantic Ocean into the Arctic Basin plays a crucial role for environmental conditions in the Arctic Ocean. The Fram Centre Arctic Ocean Flagship project A-TWAIN collects unique new data on the Atlantic Water that enters the Arctic Ocean north of Svalbard.
