School children from Seattle and Gilje School in Bømlo participate in an international research program to learn about how the sea ice in the Arctic is drifting. They use ice buoys which are tracked by satellites to measure the ice drift and compare with the Fram drift 127 years ago. They also use ice buoys to study the ice drift pattern in the Beaufort Sea.
CAATEX addresses research in the central Arctic Ocean, especially the ocean climate change. The Arctic warms rapidly, but yet the central Arctic Ocean under the sea ice is poorly observed and remains largely unknown. This project focus on
