New book; Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms

Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms by Pettersson and Pozdnyakov, 2012.Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms by Pettersson and Pozdnyakov, 2012.The book Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms has recently been published by Springer- Praxis. The book build on the experience the Nansen Centers have build up during the last 25 years in use of satellite remote sensing, airborne survey, field observations and ocean ecosystem modelling in detection and monitoring of harmful algal blooms in coastal and ocean waters.

Arctic and Marine Remote Sensing Studies

Research area: 
Arctic and Marine Remote Sensing Studies

Develop, validate and apply remote sensing for use in ocean and sea ice studies, Greenland ice sheet variations, operational oceanography and climate research.

Research Description: 

Multidisciplinary research activities based on knowledge and expertise in satellite remote sensing, ocean acoustics, signal processing, electromagnetic radiation physics, sea ice physics, oceanography, boundary layer meteorology, air-sea-ice interaction and information technology for management and dissemination of satellite based information.

Develop and validate retrieval algorithms for ocean and sea ice parameters from various satellite Earth observation data, which in are used in studies of upper layer mesoscale ocean processes, air-sea-ice interaction, climate change studies and in operational oceanography.

  • To advance research and monitoring of upper ocean processes and dynamics by synergetic use of satellite, in-situ data and modelling.
