Many people have wondered who they are and what they are up to, these people who regularly wander across the ice wearing a wetsuit and pulling a small rubber boat.

Arctic Frontiers

The upcoming conference Arctic Frontiers 2018 in Tromsø - Connecting the Arctic - gives several opportunities to get a taste of the ongoing research taking place at Norut. Get the overview here.

Marin plastic pollution

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

Oil

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

Drones

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.

Vacant positions at Norut.
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.
