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

SFE

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

LEGACY

  • Sea Ice Modelling

    The Nansen Legacy provides an integrated scien­tific knowledge base required for the sustainable management through the 21st century of the environment and marine resources of the Barents Sea and adjacent Arctic Basin.

UAK

  • Acoustic and Oceanography

    Useful Arctic Knowledge - Partnership for Research and Education funded by the INTPART program.

RISES

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.

INTAROS

NorDataNet

  • Scientific Data Management

    Safe stewardship, preservation and unified access to heterogeneous scientific datasets in the environmental domain.

NMDC

  • Scientific Data Management

    16 Norwegian institutions are establishing a research infrastructure NMDC that will provide seamless access to marine data, greatly increase the efficiency of marine science in Norway and facilitate the generation of high quality research.

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.

Arktalas

AOIP

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

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.
