NorDataNet: Norwegian Scientific Data Network

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

The main emphasis is on coordination of efforts and requirements, enhancing interoperability and user interfaces to existing facilities, as well as development of toolboxes for data documentation in order to reduce technical and governance obstacles. The infrastructure must provide online access to data and facilitate long term preservation, in order to maximise the benefit of public funds invested in the datasets. The intention is to link existing institutional and discipline specific systems to promote science regardless of geographical and institutional location.

IMOS: Isfjorden Marine Observatory Svalbard

IMOS will support long-term synergistic cooperation between Russian and Norwegian scientists working in Svalbard by establishing a joint marine plankton observatory in Isfjorden.

Isfjorden is the largest fjord system in Svalbard, located in the dynamic transition zone between warm Atlantic and colder Arctic climate regimes. We will expand the existing time series on seasonal hydrography and plankton dynamics in ice-free Adventfjorden (since 2009) and seasonal ice covered Billefjorden (since 2001) with an observatory located in the mouth of Isfjorden close to Barentsburg and an observatory in the deep Karlskronadjupet, close to Longyearbyen.

GeoAccessNO: GeoAccessNO

GeoAccessNo aims to link data, physical samples, software, methodologies and documentation in order to further improve the understanding of the fourth paradigm.

GeoAccessNO willl analyse the current status of geoscientific data management (both physical and digital dataset), software management and analysis tools, documentation of data and software, chaining of data and software and work flow management at a national and international level. It is exploring technologies and existing systems and frameworks in order to establish a demonstrator offering an integrated view on the elements listed above. Involvement of users is key to a successfull project, and GeoAccessNo will therefore facilitate two workshops.

OSITAC WITS: Copernicus OSITAC Wind, Sea Ice and Temperature at the Sea Surface Service

WITS will provide operational (Level 3 and 4) observational multi-mission data products derived from upstream satellite earth observation (L2) data. These data products include important sea surface temperature (SST), sea ice and wind variables.

The Ocean and Sea Ice Thematic Assembly Centre (OSI TAC) as an integrated part of the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMS) is operated by a consortium comprised of the partners that successfully delivered the OSI TAC service in the MyOcean, MyOcean2 and MyOceanFollow-On projects. The partnership has world-leading expertise in delivering operational services for the marine users, as well as in the associated product and system development.

NMDC: Norwegian Marine Data Centre

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.

NMDC infrastructure aims to fill the lack of an integrated sys-tem for exchange of marine data in Norway between institutions, hampering operational, efficient and cutting edge marine science. The infrastructure will give a general overview of and access to available datasets, by using common data formats, modern technical infrastructure for data sharing, and the ab-sence of inter-institutional agreements.

SPICES: Space-borne observations for detecting and forecasting sea ice cover extremes

SPICES will develop new and innovative sea ice products that can be used as indicators of climate change in the polar ocean, as well as for securing operations in ice-infested waters.

The main objective of SPICES project is to develop new methods to retrieve sea ice parameters from existing (and imminent) satellite sensors to provide enhanced products for polar operators and prediction systems, specifically addressing extreme and unexpected conditions. To meet this challenge, we have formed a consortium comprised of the best European researchers in sea ice remote sensing, operational sea-ice modelling, seasonal forecasting, and climate research.
