Fish behaviour and implications for abundance estimates

Fish vertical distribution and individual swimming behaviour is essential for their acoustic detectability and properties. The project will address under which conditions semi-demersal fish live closely assocoated with the sediment and under which conditi ons they ascend into the water column, in...

Monitoring of marine benthic communities - Improvement of analytical technique based on image analysis

Environmental monitoring based on image-analysis and automatic data retrieval and handling is believed to become important tools in the assessment of human activities and their effects on marine ecosystems. The goal of this project is to improve and refin e methods and techniques used in monitori...

Snow Parameter Retrieval from Remote Sensing data for Improved Monitoring and Management of Water Resources. SnowMan

We will improve the understanding of how satellite-measured microwaves and light interact with snow cover in mountainous areas and, thereby, develop new and improved algorithms for snow parameter retrieval. The main parameters are snow water equivalent, s now cover area, snow wetness, albedo and ...

OVERVÅK-Overvåkn.av marine/terrestr.s.

Ocean hub monitoring of marine resources

In this project we want to explore the possibility of development of automatic acoustic systems that monitor and quantify fluxes of biomass through an "acoustic fens". Horizontal and vertical looking acoustic transducers (both fixed and mobile) will form the fens, and their performance will be ...

Survey Strategy and Methodology for Marine Habitat Mapping - SUSHIMAP

Marine habitats are important as the living space for the organisms that constitute the biodiversity and support the fisheries in Norway. These habitats are subject to a number of activities that can influence their quality and distribution. Foremost amon g these are the fishing and offshore petr...

New Generation Earth Observation Tools

The project will develop a common mathematical framework for multi-data analysis and apply this for the development of methods for analysis of earth obseration data from different sensors, with a high number of bands, with different spatial resolution and acquired over a period of time under chan...

Spatial and temporal variability of currents and transport of warm waters towards the Nordic Seas

The proposed program to measure currents, temperature, sanility and CO2 across the North Atlantic between the Orkney (UK) and Cape Farewell (Greenland) spans all warm waters flowing north in what is known as the global termohaline circulation (popularly k nown as the Conveyor Belt). While the gen...

Monitoring the Norwegian Coastal Zone Environment (MONCOZE)

Currently major deficiencies exist in our ability to understand and describe the variability of the Norwegian Coastal Current and its influence on the marine environment, locally as well as downstream. In this project we will therefore implement, validate , test and demonstrate a system dedicated...
