NERSC Annual report for 2005 is now available

More than two decades of scientific expertise achieved at the Nansen Center within Arctic and sea ice research are timely relevant in relation to climate change and the increased activities in the Barents Sea and Russian Arctic shelf seas. Further details are found in our Annual report for 2005.
A major highlight in 2005 was the selection of the project “Climate and Environmental Change in the Arctic - CECA”, to the Laureates of the EU Descartes research prize in Earth Science for 2005. CECA was lead by Ola M. Johannessen, Lasse H. Pettersson as deputy leader, Lennart Bengtsson, Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, and Leonid Bobylev, Nansen International Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre in St. Petersburg, as the partners.

During the year 2005, 26 papers were published in international referee journals - of which two in Science - two books, 11 technical and four special reports, six conference proceedings, one doctoral dissertation and six popular science articles – totally 56 publications and reports.
