A regular scheduled passenger aircraft will for the first time fly with equipment and high-resolution imaging systems normally used on satellites. Scientists believe this is the start of a new era for collecting environmental data and that the aircraft will also increase safety and emergency response in the Arctic.

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.

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.
