Projects

The Nansen Center is a project oriented international research centre focusing on the basic research within marine environment and ocean forecasting, satellite remote sensing and climate studies and modelling. Our research is funded by projects granted through competitive calls by research councils, space agencies, EU, national and international government agencies, industry and private donations.

Some of our on-going research projects are listed below. The list is being populated with the most recent and on-going projects and later updated with other major completed research projects.

Ongoing Projects

PECO2

  • Ocean and Sea Ice Remote Sensing

    The PECO2 project aims to develop education, training and coordination in operational oceanography and marine services while strengthening international partnerships in this field. 

SEAMLESS

SPECIAL

Climate Futures

  • Climate Dynamics and Prediction

    Our goal is to generate long-term cooperation between companies, public organizations and research groups across sectors  to tackle climate risk

CoRea

CAPARDUS

TRIATLAS

BCPU

CAATEX

  • Acoustic and Oceanography

    Two sound sourcs in fixed moorings will transmit a signal which will be received on listen cables in 5 fixed moorings and four drifting drifting receivers hundreds of kilometers away from the sound sources. 

SFE

  • The aim of SFE is to develop a state-of-the-art operational seasonal climate prediction system for Northern Europe and the Arctic. 

Completed Projects

FyB

  • Float Your Boat vil sette ut 400 trebåter på sjøisen i Arktis for å følge deres bevegelser med vind og havstrømmer fra Polhavet og ut i det Nordiskehavet som en del av skoleundervisning i naturfag.

Marine Data i Arktis

  • Dette prosjektet skal lage en dynamisk oversikt over relevante observasjons-systemer, datasamlinger og dataforvaltningssystemerfor Arktiske hav-områder og dermed øke nytteverdien av innsamlede data.

FRASIL

NFR-INTAROS

  •  Hovedmål er å støtte opp om EU-prosjektet INTAROS for  å utvikle et integrert multidisiplinært arktisk observasjonssystem ved å utvide, forbedre og sammenkoble eksisterende systemer i ulike deler av Arktis.
