Pan-Arctic observing System of Systems: Implementing Observations for societal Needs
The project will develop an integrated, comprehensive, pan-Arctic observation system, through international cooperation.
Under the leadership of the German Alfred Wegener Institutt (AWI) 35 partners in 17 countries will work for further development, better coordination, and contribute to wider use of observation data from the comprehensive Arctic observation system. User groups are the local population in the Arctic, research environments, business and authorities.
The Norwegian Polar Institute will deploy instrument rigs for long time series in the Arctic Ocean, and deploy buoys for sea ice measurements. The ice-going research vessel Crown Prince Haakon will be an important platform for this work.
