Camilla Brekke from CIRFA and the Department of Physics and Technology is the new pro-rector for research at UiT. She will start in August, together with the new rector Dag Rune Olsen and pro-rector for education, Kathrine Tveiterås. Camilla is looking forward to new tasks and challenges to support innovative research at UiT. CIRFA is congratulating!
Welcome to ‘Behind the Scenes’, the podcast series of the EU Research and Innovation Exhibition, part of the EU Research and Innovation Days 2021. The episode “A village on ice” is connected to the MOSAiC expedition and open questions in Earth climate sciences, but it also talks about Polona Itkins background and what inspired her to become a researcher.
UiT, KSAT, and NPI have suggested establishing a national centre for research and innovation for earth observation in Tromsø. The centre will serve as a platform to connect actors based in Tromsø and nationwide.
Polona Itkin presents about MOSAiC research in the APECS-ARICE webinar: DEARice in MOSAiC – Connecting the world of snow, ice and ecosystem processes on 4 June.
Silje joined the CIRFA team already in 2020 to do her PhD with us. She is located at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (MET) in Oslo and her work focuses on ocean circularion forecasts for the Norwegian coastal and shelf seas.
Artem Moiseev will defend his PhD thesis on “Ocean surface currents derived from Sentinel-1 SAR Doppler shift measurements” on 20. May kl. 15.15. Artem is PhD candidate at NERSC and affiliated with CIRFA.
Join us for the next CIRFA Seminar on 20. May with a special focus on icebergs.
What is young and thin ice doing, and where is it moving right when it forms? Malin Johansson send her pink drifter called ThinTec for a hitchhike on the ice to watch it grow, track its movements, and send its measurements in real time to Malin`s computer via its GPS antenna.
Congratulations to PhD candidate Salman Khalegian`s paper on Sea Ice Classification of SAR Imagery Based on Convolution Neural Networks.
Rydeng Jenssen will Tuesday May 11th at 12:15 publically defend his thesis for the PhD degree in Science.
