Research on oceanography

We gather knowledge about the peculiarities of the physical sea conditions in the Arctic Ocean, its role in climate and climate change, and how variations in sea level and changes in ocean climate may affect marine life. The oceanographers at the Norwegian Polar Institute investigates physical processes of the polar oceans and Nordic Seas through a variety of methods. Both through analytical theory and numerical modeling as well as sea-going observational programs and laboratory experiments we try to understand different aspects related to the physics of the Arctic and Antarctic oceans.
