EU invites the Nansen Center to negotiations on two prestigious Arctic projects

Two large projects proposals to the Horizon 2020 Blue Growth - Demonstrating an ocean of opportunities call, respectively coordinated by and with major participation from Nansen Center, have today been invited to negotiations with the European Commission. Prof. Stein Sandven coordinates the Integrated Arctic Observing system (INTAROS) project. Prof. Yongqi Gao is a key partner in the Blue-Action: Arctic Impact on Weather and Climate project coordinated by the Danish Meteorological Institute and Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology.

Area of Expertise: 

Some of my research interests are acoustic tomography, passive and active underwater acoustics, measurement technology, and processing and visualization of data.

I have participated in more than 10 research cruises, with emphasis on the Arctic Ocean.

I'm currently involved in the following projects:

  • Useful Arctic Knowledge (UAK) 
  • Smart Ocean (SFI)
  • FloatYourBoat

GeoAccessNO: GeoAccessNO

GeoAccessNo aims to link data, physical samples, software, methodologies and documentation in order to further improve the understanding of the fourth paradigm.

GeoAccessNO willl analyse the current status of geoscientific data management (both physical and digital dataset), software management and analysis tools, documentation of data and software, chaining of data and software and work flow management at a national and international level. It is exploring technologies and existing systems and frameworks in order to establish a demonstrator offering an integrated view on the elements listed above. Involvement of users is key to a successfull project, and GeoAccessNo will therefore facilitate two workshops.

Challenges in sea ice retrieval methods using satellite microwave radiometers

Dr Natalia IvanovaSea ice concentration has been retrieved in polar regions with satellite microwave radiometers for over 30 years. Sea ice information providers, including EUMETSAT's OSISAF, ArcticROOS/Nansen Center, Copernicus OSI-TAC, NSIDC, University of Bremen and others, produce daily updates of the Arctic Sea ice area and extent.
