Research Groups

The Nansen Center are organized in the below nine thematic research groups, in which the project based research activities are implemented.

Provide reliable climate prediction and advance the understanding of the climate variability, predictability and teleconnections

GC Rieber Climate Institute (Climate Processes Group): Physical climate knowledge to address societal challenges

The very best way to make a forecast out of a numerical model and a set of observations.

Advancing research and monitoring of upper ocean processes and dynamics by synergetic use of satellite and in situ data

Performs research within modeling of physical ocean and marine ecosystem.

Take a leading role in the development, implementation and scientific use of a Pan Arctic Ocean Observing System

Leveraging open standards for geospatial data and web services to provide virtual research environments to help scientists collaborate more easily

Conduct sea and land ice remote sensing research applications, developing innovative methods and provide valuable products to users

We work on the physics of sea ice and its role in the polar climate system, combining numerical model developments and satellite remote sensing
