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

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

FyB

  • Polar Acoustics and Oceanography

    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.

Arktalas

  • The Arktalas project aims to remove knowledge gaps and advance the insight and quantitative understanding of sea ice, ocean and atmosphere interactive processes and their mutual feedback

TRIATLAS

AOIP

BCPU

CAATEX

  • Climate Dynamics and Prediction, Polar Acoustics and Oceanography, Scientific Data Management

    During the MOSAiC drift, 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

INES

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.

TRAKT-2018

UAK

TOPVOYS

  • The project aims to implement analyses tools and decision support system for voyage optimization and to find the “best route” for a ship based on the marine weather forecasts, ship characteristics and cargo requirements.

GCloudl

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.

ARCONOR
