Marin plastic pollution

Can knowledge from a container of beach waste contribute to reducing marine waste?

For the first time, the resources for oil spill contingency and response in Northern Norway will be mapped.

Icebergs is a risk to all ships navigating in the high Arctic. Norut has developed a system for real-time detection and monitoring of sea ice, using UAVs.

New job

Norut is searching for new staff! A Research Director and Senior Research Scientists in social science disciplines, a PhD position on oil-in-ice and an engineer specialising in unmanned aircraft systems are all on Norut’s wish list.

Oil

The Norut companies in Narvik and Tromsø don’t meet halfway when they conduct joint experiments, but rather in Hamburg. Using a large tank designed for ship testing, they are combining their expertise in oil behaviour in ice with remote sensing and drone technology. The goal is to map oil spills in sea ice-covered waters.

Marine plastic

The kick off meeting for the MARP project was held at Svalbard in September, and an open air exhibition in October gave the public a touch and smell of what marine plastic pollution is really about.

Five research scientists from Norut had outdoor offices at Ny-Ålesund last week. Equipped with ground radar and drones, they were involved with four projects. Read on for a brief overview.
