SAMCoT videos

In search of the perfect ice:

 

SAMCoT researchers travel to some of the most inaccessible places on the planet, most recently, to the icy waters off the northeast coast of Greenland. The video below highlights some of the research undertaken in the autumn of 2013 during the Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise (OATRC 2013):

An important part of SAMCoT's programme is giving PhD candidates field experience and contact with the industry, so they can get full scale field data and talk to the potential users of those data. Hayo Hendrikse and Anna Pustogvar, who both participated in the OATRC 2013 cruise, talk about their experience and what it's like to be a PhD at SAMCoT. Here's Anna Pustogvar:

In 2012, the Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise also went to the waters off the northeast coast of Greenland. SAMCoT director Sveinung Løset talks about the importance of the cruise and describes what happens during an ice station, when the Oden icebreaker is moored to a big ice sheet and researchers conduct a series of tests. The time-lapse footage that is the centrepiece of this video was shot by Øyvind Hagen, a Statoil photographer who went on the 2012 cruise:
