Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center
Thormøhlensgt. 47 N-5006 Bergen NORWAY
Non-profit Organization
Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) is an independent non-profit research institute affiliated with the University of Bergen, Norway.
The Nansen Center conducts basic and applied environmental research funded by national and international governmental agencies, research councils and industry.

NERSC's vision is to make a significant contribution to the understanding, monitoring and forecasting of the world's environment and climate on regional and global scales. This is done through coordination and participation in national and international research programs focusing on:

  • Studies of global and regional climate processes using numerical models together with observations from earth-monitoring satellites and field experiments;
  • Modelling of the global and regional marine ecosystem and carbon cycle combined with use of satellite ocean color observations;
  • Studies of ocean disposal of the greenhouse gas CO2 as an option for reducing the rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration;
  • Studies of coastal zone processes and ecosystem dynamics by integrated use of high resolution ocean circulation models and observations through advanced data assimilation systems;
  • Studies of sea ice processes using coupled numerical models and observations from satellite. Operational monitoring and forecasting of the coastal zone as a tool for management and risk assessment;
  • Operational monitoring and forecasting of ice conditions as a service to offshore industry, ship traffic and fishing industry.
