    Characterization and quantification of anthropogenic, biological and ambient sounds in the oceans are important for a range of marine industries as well as for enhancing our understanding of marine ecosystem.

  • Autonomous surface vehicles for fish detection / Fiskeletende Autonome Overflatefarkoster

    Fiskerinæringen bruker årlig store ressurser på fiskeleting, både for å finne ut hvor et innsig slår til og for å finne gode og riktige fangster på feltene. Autonome overflatefarkoster med et lavt energiforbruk har et stort potensial i leting og overvåkning for fiskerinæringen, og vil kunne gi pålitelig sanntids beslutningsstøtte før fangst. Teknologiutviklingen har nådd et punkt hvor denne typen overflatefarkoster er utprøvd og kommersielt tilgjengelig.

  • Mobile acoustic observation methodologies for cabled ocean observatory transects

    The scientific idea of Lofoten-Vesterålen cabled ocean observatory (infrastructure project, LoVe) is to establish real-time monitoring that produces four-dimensional properties of observations along the observatory transect (depth • distance from coast • time • flux of observed quantities). The project aims to be an operational framework which in turn will facilitate continuous monitoring of water and biomass flux along the coast by the Norwegian costal and Atlantic currents, thus connecting processes at the coast with those taking place in northern oceans. Such a perspective requires observations also in-between the stationary cable nodes, and a spatial interpolation model that utilizes all available observations to give the best possible information at the transect along the cable
