Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology (SAMCoT)

WP1 - Data Collection and Process Modelling

Goals:

To collect and analyze field data on sea ice, icebergs, and coastal permafrost. The primary goal is to provide field data as required by the other Work Packages.

Background:

Work Package1 builds on 20 yearsof extensive experimental investigations on Svalbard and in the Barents and Kara Seas regions involving numerous researchers, MSc and PhD students, which had provided the experimental basis for 10 PhD students from 1997 to the present. Field studies in the regions of the Russian Arctic will be carried out within the cooperation agreement between UNIS and Moscow State University (MSU).
