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.
