Arctic offshore and coastal engineering in changing climate, 2018–2020 (AOCEC)

Arctic offshore and coastal engineering in changing climate, 2018–2020 (AOCEC)

AOCEC inherits SITRA, FIMA, SMIDA and SafeLOT and is actually the fourth project for development of International collaboration in high education and science in the Arctic Technology department.

Project activities are focused on the following topics:

  • Physics and mechanics of ice and loads on structures
  • Sea ice/iceberg drift, ice management, wave stresses on ice
  • Shipping in ice-infested waters, navigation in Arctic straits
  • Arctic harbours, coastal zones and infrastructure

UNIS hosts AOCEC and professor Aleksey Marchenko is project leader.

Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada), Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia), Norwegian University of Science and Technology, University of Oslo (Norway), University of Alaska Fairbanks (USA) and Dartmouth College (USA) are in the team.
