Sailbuoy for krill

Seilbøyen (sailbuoy.no) har bevist sin operasjonelle robusthet gjennom å krysse Atlanterhavet uten menneskelig medvirkning. Den er en liten farkost som blir drevet fram ved vindkraft og der solenergi fornyer energien som trengs til datainnsamling og kommunikasjon. Seilbøyen kommuniserer over sate...

POLARPROG-Polarforskningsprogram

Krill-dominated Ecosystem Dynamics in the Scotia Sea

Antarktis har krill dominerte økosystem, definert slik på grunn av nøkkelrolla til krill. Toppredatorane er i stor grad avhengig av krill enten direkte eller indirekte ved at dei et krill eller artar som lever av krill. Spesielt avhengig av krill, og derfor sårbare, er landbaserte predatorar som ...

HAVKYST-Havet og kysten

Remote sensing of mesoscale oceanic processes by acoustics and satellite sensors - a new approach to understanding of bio-physical coupling

Mesoscale eddies are important for the ocean circulation and are considered important for the open sea productivity. The basic processes behind are difficult to study and are vaguely understood mainly due to inadequate spatio-temporal coverage offered by traditional methodologies. Recent studies ...

HAVKYST-Havet og kysten

Low-frequency acoustics - potentials and dangers for marine ecosystem application

Low frequency acoustics from hundreds of Hz to 10 kHz includes the range for Navy sonars and have recently been tested assessing the distribution, density, and behaviour of pelagic fish. These frequencies are within the hearing range of fish and marine ma mmals. Operation at these frequencies may...

AVIT-Avansert vitenskapelig utstyr

Instrumentpakke for økosystemvurdering - F/F G.O. Sars

Framtidig fokus for marin overvåkning vil i økende grad bli økosystemene i stedet for de enkelte bestander. For å nå slike mål trengs en målrettet og koordinert utvikling av metodikken med et bredt samarbeid mellom institusjoner i inn og utland. Konseptue lle rammeverk med tilhørende teknologiske...

HAVKYST-Havet og kysten

Surface monitoring of marine resources by LIDAR (SUMMAREL)

Mackerel is presently one of the economically most important stocks in the northeast Atlantic. Further, the stock has a substantial but scientifically unclear role in the dynamics of Norwegian Sea ecosystem. High market prices mean that even small changes in catch size, the Norwegian share is 31...

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 ...
