Comprehensive studies of the ocean circulation in the Lofoten Basin

Dr. Roshin P. Raj, NERSC.Post-doc Dr. Roshin P. Raj is first author of two publications that provide new knowledge on the mesoscale ocean variability in the Lofoten basin, published in cooperation with colleagues at the Nansen Center, Geophysical Institute at University of Bergen and Cape Peninsula University of Technology in South Africa.

iNcREASE: NoRthern European and Arctic Sea lEvel

InCREASE seeks to improve projections of future sea level in the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast

Making regional sea level projections is a challenge, since in addition to the numerous local forcing elements, there are components forced from the open ocean onto the shelves and coasts that are largely unknown. Also, the two main components of sea level change, thermal expansion and global land-ice melt, have spatially varying imprints.

SONARC: Development of sea ice monitoring and forecasting system to support safe operations and navigation in Arctic Seas

SONARC is a NORRUSS project contributing to research cooperation between Norway and Russia with focus on satellite technology for safe navigation and maritime operations in the Arctic. SONARC was running from April 2015 to November 2018

The main objective of SONARC is to develop a sea ice monitoring and forecasting system to support safe operations and navigation in Arctic Seas. SONARC has exploited Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from satellites as a major component of this system. From 2015 Sentinel-1 has been the main provider of SAR data, deliverig data every day in near realtime for monitoring of sea ice and other environmental parameters.

Ocean and Sea Ice Remote Sensing

Scientific Group Name: 
Ocean and Sea Ice Remote Sensing
Advancing research and monitoring of upper ocean processes and dynamics by synergetic use of satellite and in situ data
  • Strengthen the use of available satellite and in situ ocean observations for ocean monitoring, model validation, data assimilation, and prediction
  • Support the development of future observing platforms by advancing the interpretation of satellite data in terms of geophysical quantities (like wind, wave, and current)
  • Exploit synergetic (complementary and overlapping) observational coverage to understand upper ocean processes and dynamics across all available time and space scales

CoCoNET: Towards COast to COast NETworks of marine protected areas (from the shore to the high and deep sea), coupled with sea-based wind energy potential

A new map for Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean and Black Sea

The Project will identify groups of putatively interconnected MPAs in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas, shifting from local (single MPA) to regional (Networks of MPAs) and basin (network of networks) scales. The identification of physical and biological connections with clear the proceses that govern patterns of biodiversity distribution.

GlobCurrent: GlobCurrent

GlobCurrent aims to advance the quantitative estimation of ocean surface currents from satellite sensor synergy and to demonstrate the impact and advancements through user-led scientific, operational, and commercial applications.

Thanks to satellite and in-situ observations, combined with high resolution numerical ocean models, the last decade has seen advances in the knowledge and views of the global ocean surface dynamics, filled with a large number of various mesoscale (~100 km) and sub-mesoscale (<~10 km) meandering surface currents and eddies.  However, we are now faced with the challenge of accurately quantifying the surface current associated with these mesoscale to sub mesoscale features.  Certainly, it not always possible to provide highly accurate forecasts of the locations and evolution of su
