Details/Description: Norway maintains its long-term commitment of scientific research in Antarctica. The Norwegian Polar Institute as the national coordinator enables Norway to maintain this role from its research and long-term monitoring and survey activities. In addition to NPI, the Norwegian Air Research Institute (NILU) undertakes long-term survey and remote sensing activities in Antarctica. NPI provides the main infrastructure for polar research, maintains the permanent Norwegian presence in Antarctica, and supports international objectives through collaborative scientific and logistic links with many other national programs. As an important contribution for long-term scientific activities is permanently occupied research station Troll.

Details/Description: The Policy for Norwegian polar research 2010–13 was prepared by the Norwegian National Committee on Polar Research for the Research Council of Norway. This is the first time the Research Council has drawn up a document that covers research both in the Arctic, including Svalbard, and in the Antarctic. The policy document has been formulated on the basis of key challenges and opportunities for Norwegian polar research, new trends in the polar regions and Norway’s overall interests in this context.

Project Name/Number: Atmospheric research and monitoring at Troll: a long-term observational program.
Discipline: Atmospheric chemistry
Principal Investigator: Georg Hansen, Norwegian Institute for Air Research, Tromsø
Main Activity/ Remarks: The Troll Atmospheric Station in Antarctica was established and put into operation in early 2007. The main foci of the measurement programme are pollution and aerosols in the transition zone between the coastal zone and the inland ice plateau, complementing existing observation programmes along the Antarctic coast and on the Antarctic Plateau.

Project Name/Number: Fimbulisen Top-Down
Discipline: Glacilogy and Oceanography
Principal Investigator: Ole Anders Nøst, Norwegian Polar Institute
Main Activity/ Remarks: The main aim of this two season field work is to study the mass balance of the Fimbul Ice Shelf and also the melting and circulation in the ocean underneath the floating ice. The interactions between the ocean and the ice in Antarctica are important processes for the understanding of the global climate. However, these processes are not understood well enough for their inclusion in the climate models used to predict the climate in the near future.
