UNIS: Testing of soil/ice properties

As it was planned preliminary for SITRA project prolongation, PhD student Artem Nesterov and Dr. Nikolay Vasilyev came to work in the lab with the samples prepared in May. UNIS prof. Aleksey Marchenko provided equipment and supervision. They have 4 large samples of fresh and saline soil and ice to measure their deformations, temperature and […]

Field studies and modelling of sea state, drift ice, ice actions and methods of icebergs management on the Arctic shelf, 2015–2017 (FIMA)

Field studies and modelling of sea state, drift ice, ice actions and methods of icebergs management on the Arctic shelf, 2015–2017 (FIMA) FIMA was hosted by UNIS and funded by the Research Council of Norway through the NORRUSS program (Russia and the High North/Arctic). NTNU, VNIIGAZ GASPROM and the State Oceanographic Institute (Moscow) were project […]

Experiments on waves in oil and ice, 2014–2016 (WAVES)

Experiments on waves in oil and ice, 2014–2016 (WAVES) WAVES was hosted by the University of Oslo (UiO) and funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project provided experimental data from the laboratory and the field, to be used to validate existing theories pertaining to wave damping caused by flexible surface covers (due to […]

Maritime Preparedness and International Partnership in the High North (MARPART Project Consortium)

Maritime Preparedness and International Partnership in the High North (MARPART Project Consortium) The MARPART Consortium consists of 13 universities and research institutes that focus on emergency management and crisis preparedness. The consortium is coordinated by Nord University in Bodø, Norway and assesses the risk of increasing transport activity and challenges for search and rescue (SAR), […]

Safety of Industrial Development and Transportation Routes in the Arctic, 2015–2019 (SITRA)

Safety of Industrial Development and Transportation Routes in the Arctic, 2015–2019 (SITRA) SITRA was funded by Norwegian Centre for International cooperation in Education (SIU) via the High North Programme for 2015–2019. This SMIDA sister project expanded the collaboration in the field of Arctic Technology overseas. UNIS and Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada) were the main […]

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 […]

Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology (SAMCoT)

Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology (SAMCoT) SAMCoT was a centre for research-based innovation, established by the Research Council of Norway. The research activities in SAMCoT were carried out by the host institution NTNU together with UNIS, SINTEF and 14 other partners. SAMCoT Objectives: To provide the research based knowledge necessary in order forthe industry […]

Multi-Instrument Studies of High Latitude Atmospheric Turbulence and Wave Processes

Multi-Instrument Studies of High Latitude Atmospheric Turbulence and Wave Processes The project aims to initiate a new collaboration between the two research groups through a joint study into how energy is dissipated into the upper atmosphere through interaction between the Sun’s magnetic field (IMF) and the Earth’s magnetic field. Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) waves and […]

Air-Ice-Sea interaction

Air-Ice-Sea interaction The overall purpose is to investigate the processes involved in air-ice-sea interaction, something which is quite badly represented in today’s climate models with main emphasis is on the atmospheric boundary layer over open water and sea ice and investigation of processes controlling momentum and heat fluxes at the air-ice-sea interface. The main goals […]
