Snow

The radar onboard the drone Kraken can measure snow depth, image snow layers and see objects under the snow. Earlier in the spring, Norut demonstrated how drones can contribute to emergency preparedness involving avalanches.

Ice

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.

Oil

Norut Narvik is taking part in a new EU Horizon 2020 project focusing on the development of Arctic oil spill response methods and the evaluation of their environmental effects.

Dam

New regulations mean huge sums must be spent on upgrading many of Norway's 6,000 dams. Cold climate scientists at Norut are measuring ice pressure and testing alternatives that may provide more accurate and cheaper rehabilitation.

Environment

Biosurfactants produced by Norwegian cold-tolerated bacteria enhance biodegradation of oil pollution. They can be used as a “greener” alternative to chemical surfactant.

Arctic

The increased activity in the Arctic demands better search and rescue capacity for the people located in the area. Norut has investigated the current status and proposed a series of improvements.

Power

Collaboration between Norut and companies in Narvik is allowing Statnett to extend the construction season and save millions.
