Details/Description: The Policy for Norwegian polar research 2014–17 was prepared by the Norwegian National Committee on Polar Research for the Research Council of Norway. This is the second 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 based on key challenges and opportunities for Norwegian polar research, new trends in the Polar Regions and Norway’s overall interests in this context. In 2014 The Research Council published the report "Policy for Norwegian polar research 2014-2023” which recommends an increase in Norwegian research activity in the Antarctic.

Project Name/Number: A permanent, broadband, seismic station at the Troll research base: installation, data analysis and interpretation
Discipline: Geophysics and seismology
Principal Investigator: Johannes Schweitzer (NORSAR)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The permanent broadband seismic station at Troll was established and put into operation in early 2012. all data are transferred in real time via a satellite link to NORSAR for analysis and further distributed to the European data center ORFEUS, where they can be accessed by the whole seismological community.

Project Name/Number: Atmospheric research and monitoring at Troll: a long-term observational program.
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Norwegian Institute for Air Research
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: Compilation of a new geological overiew map of Dronning Maud Land
Discipline: Geology
Principal Investigator: Synnøve Elvevold (NPI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The Norwegian Polar Institute, as the national authority for mapping and surveying in Antarctica, is compiling existing geological maps of Dronning Maud Land in order to develop a new seamless digital GIS database. A total of 80 source maps are scanned, georeferenced and digitalized in ArcGIS. The new overview map of DML is being compiled at the scale of 1:250 000 , and a new uniform and descriptive legend will be constructed for the overview map.

Project Name/Number: Long-term observing system for the oceanic regime of Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica
Discipline: Glaciology
Principal Investigator: Svein Østerhus
Main Activity/ Remarks: This project will establish and maintain an observing system for the oceanic regime of Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica, with the aims to increase our knowledge about the role and variability of the Filchner-Ronne ice shelf (FRIS) system in the climate system. The project will improve the general understanding of the mechanisms and forcing related to the warm in- and cold outflow from FRIS.

Principal Investigator: Kenichi Matsuoka (NPI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Mass balance, dynamics, and climate of the central Dronning Maud Land coast, East Antarctica (MADICE). This 4-year project (2016–2020) investigates how the coastal area of the Antarctic ice sheet has changed in the last several millennia. This project collaborates with India's Antarctic programme to investigate floating ice shelves and adjacent grounded ice in central DML.

Project Name/Number: MAGIC-DML
Discipline: Glaciology
Principal Investigator: Ola Fredin
Main Activity/ Remarks: MAGIC-DML is an international collaboration focused on reconstructing the long-term pattern and timing of vertical changes in ice-surface elevation across key transects of Dronning Maud Land (DML) in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS), as the basis for constraining numerical models of ice sheet behavior. Field sites are nunataks (mountains that extend above current and former ice levels and that can be used as 'dipsticks' to reconstruct changes in ice elevation), and past ice elevation is determined by field mapping combined with cosmogenic nuclide (CN) dating of glacial landforms.

Permit Period: From:  02 Jan 2017   To:  09 Jan 2017
Purpose: To conduct research (within the framework of the Norwegian Antarctic Research Expeditions) with a primary objective to understand how interactions between changes in oceanographic conditions (and in particular sea-ice dynamics) and foraging behaviour affect Antarctic seabird demography and their population dynamics.
Summary of activities: Ringing, blood sampling and fitting of gps on a number of Antarctic petrel, snow petrel and south polar skua. The project has three field seasons, and similar permits for activities in the ASPA will be required in the two next austral summer seasons.
