The Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center is offering a 3-year Post-doc /young scientist fellowship position in sea ice remote sensing.
The position is a part of the project Development of sea ice monitoring and forecasting system to support safe operations and navigation in Arctic seas (SONARC) funded by the Research Council of Norway under the bilateral NORRUSS programme. The position includes collaboration with Russian partners, who are funded by the Russian Fund for Basic Research.

Samarbeidsklimaet mellom Kina og Norge er godt og voksende innen klimaforskning. 11 år etter at Nansen-Zhu International Research Centre (NZC) ble etablert i Beijing ved Institute of Atmospheric Physics,Chines Academy of Science,er omfanget av samarbeidet økende. Spesielt er det felles interesser relatert til forskning p å klimadynamikk og sammenhengene mellom klimaendringer på høyere og lavere breddegrader samt mellom havendringer i Atlanter- og Stillehavene – klimatiske teleforbindelser.

One of the key questions in climate science is how has the climate changed? The historical observations are the very foundation of our ability to understand and ultimately predict climate processes. Now, you can help the scientific community to reanalyse changes in tropical cyclones over the past 30 years!

Pulse Peakiness parameter from CryoSat-2 satellite in January 2013 (colour) which can be used for sea ice classification. Black line indicates the expected border between multi-year ice (north of Greenland and Canada) and first-year-ice. Over smooth first-year-ice the radar altimeter is very peaky while over rough multi year ice it becomes more diffuse resulting in a lower Pulse Peakiness value.Dr.
