Last week Norut installed a solifluction monitoring station recording downhill movement of soil at the Nordnes mountain in Troms county. See the building of the station here.

On Monday August 27, the Minister of Education and Research took a closer look at Norut’s planes. “This offers very many exciting opportunities,” summed up Kristin Halvorsen.

The presentations from Thursday's seminar are available for download here.

A group of researchers from Norway travelled to the summit of the Greenland Ice Sheet to make measurements of solar radiation and snow albedo. See video.

Drones from Norut will during a seven-week period map how long range transport of black carbon influences the melting of snow and ice in the Arctic.

Use of remote sensing technology to map vegetation and climate change has earned Norut Tromsø a place in a top-level Nordic research programme.

A new collaboration agreement between the Northern Arctic Federal University (NArFU) and Norut will be signed this week during the Norwegian Days in Arkhangelsk.

A drone fitted with air particle sampling instruments took off from Andøya Rocket Range on May 28 – just six weeks after the volcanic ash clouds grounded aircraft.
