Field studies and modelling of sea state, drift ice, ice actions and methods of icebergs management on the Arctic shelf, 20152017 (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 partners.

Objectives:
Investigation and quantifying of physical environment in the regions of offshore development and navigational activity on the Arctic shelf; contribution to estimates of physical environmental actions on offshore structures and a reduced risk level related to operating offshore in the High North; strengthening of long-term research cooperation with leading research institutions in Russia involved in the industrial development in the High North.

UNIS professor Aleksey Marchenko was FIMA project leader.
