Ocean and Sea Ice Remote Sensing

Measuring the sea level along the Norwegian coast from space

PhD candidate Fabio Mangini (UiB/NERSC) recently published his second article, and his findings confirm that satellites can be used to reliably determine regional variations in the sea level in coastal zones of Norway. This is relevant for predicting future changes along coastlines, helping society to mitigate effects of climate change.

 

Why is the sea level important?

The IPCC climate reports' cousin: The CMEMS Ocean State Report!

The IPCC reports are well known and focus on the Earth's climate with all its facets, but have you heard about the ocean equivalent? Changes in the ocean have wide-reaching implications for the climate and life on Earth, so monitoring these changes and being able to make predictions of future changes is crucial.

Automatically detecting fast ice and stamukhi from space

Denis Demchev (OSIRS group) and Valeria Selyuzhenok (Zubrov State Oceanographic Institute, Russia) recently published a study introducing a fully-automated method to track fast ice and stamukhi in Arctic coastal zones. Their method is faster and more objective than manually-produced operational sea-ice charts and can provide near-real time information!

Using reanalysis to detect eddies in the Mediterranean Sea

A new study was published this week in Frontiers in Earth Science, “Ocean Mesoscale Variability: A Case Study on the Mediterranean Sea From a Re-Analysis Perspective”. The study under the lead of Antonio Bonaduce includes Johnny A. Johannessen and Roshin P. Raj from NERSC, as well as colleagues from Italy and Germany.

 

What are mesoscale eddies?

Arctic sea ice melting leads to more intense monsoon rainfalls in India

A new publication in the Nature Partner Journal "Climate and Atmospheric Science" is co-authored by NERSC researcher Roshin P. Raj in the Ocean and Sea Ice Remote Sensing Group, as well as professor Ola M. Johannessen from the Nansen Scientific Society. The remaining co-authors are scientists from NCPOR (Goa, India).

On improving ocean surface current investigations from space - Successful PhD defence today!

Artem Moiseev, PhD candidate in our OSIRS group, successfully defended his PhD today! His degree is being awarded by the University of Bergen. Congratulations, Artem!

PECO2: Partnership for Operational Oceanography

The PECO2 project is funded by the Research Council of Norway INPART program for 3-years from 2021 through 2023 and shall strengthen international partnerships in operational oceanography and marine services. 

The 3-years PECO2 project is implemented through three distinct workpackages targeting operational oceanography, notably:

- WP1: Review needs and opportunities for research cooperation & training

- WP2: Prepare and offer a training programme including a summer school 

- WP3: Development of curriculum

Funding Agency: 
Research Council of Norway
Coordinating Institute: 
Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center
Project Status: 
Ongoing

How are sea level and jet stream related?

Our PhD candidate Fabio Mangini with the OSIRS group recently published his first paper! He worked on it together with Laurent Bertino (NERSC) and Jan Even Øie Nilsen (previously NERSC, now IMR), as well as other researchers from the Bjerknes Center and Sweden. They set out to investigate how sea level variability in the North Sea and the jet stream over the North Atlantic are related and have found interesting connections!
