New mapping technology makes it safer to sail in Arctic waters
The ice in the Arctic is melting, making the area increasingly appealing for business activity. But sea ice can do great harm on vessels. When researchers at UiT went on a research cruise this summer, they found that a new algorithm could provide better maps for a safer journey.
Will the future Arctic Ocean become greener?
Rising global temperatures have led to sea ice melt in polar seas, allowing more light to reach the algae in the seawater. Still, researchers are unsure if sea ice melt will give a greener Arctic Ocean.
