  • Skyer halverer klimaeffekten av åpent hav

    Minkende havis i Arktis er tildelt en nøkkelrolle i klimautviklingen og er en fryktet driver for global oppvarming. Ny forskning i Tromsø viser at skyer halverer klimaeffekten av at isen forsvinner.

  • Conclusions from the ICE-cruise with RV Lance

    After 3 weeks of intensive work in icy waters off northern Svalbard, this year's ICE-cruise ended on May 16 in Longyearbyen. During this period, we documented the spring ocean and ice conditions as well as the timing and composition of the ice algal and phytoplankton bloom. We also studied spring snow–ice–ocean–atmosphere interactions, which are of great importance for improving the performance of climate models.

  • So what is CryoSat validation?

    Yesterday we ended the last ice station for the CryoSat validation group during a beautiful evening. The levelling team spent the last hours by the lead on the remote side of the floe, helped by two wonderful polar bear guardesses.

  • Blog from RV Lance: Under-ice turbulence instruments recovered

    Today we recovered our under-ice turbulence instruments after two days of operation. The system consists of eight different sensors fixed to an eight meter long aluminium pole.

  • Blog from RV Lance: Measuring, coring, drilling, dug snow pits and a whole lot of other things on the sea ice.

    After a week at sea we have been already walking on water many times, at times with more than 2000 m of water below our feet, we have been measuring, coring, drilling, dug snow pits and a whole lot of other things on the sea ice covering the Arctic Ocean north of Svalbard.

  • Cryosat: ICE-cruise 2011 blog

    An international group of seven sea ice scientists left Longyearbyen on 4 April onboard the Norwegian Coastguard vessel KV Svalbard together with polar bear and ivory gull researchers, heading towards the sea ice north and northeast of Svalbard.

  • Feltsesongen over – ankomst Troll

    I går ettermiddag ankom ekspedisjonsdeltakerne på ICE-Fimbulisen-ekspedisjonen den norske Troll-stasjonen i Dronning Maud Land, og dermed er feltsesongen avsluttet.

  • Fagfellevurderte skrifter etter International Symposium on Sea Ice tilgjengelig

    Fagfellevurderte skrifter som fulgte av «International Symposium on Sea Ice» i Tromsø i juni er nå tilgjengelig på nett.
