Institute for Geosciences (UIB-GEO): Role in the project

UiB-GEO will be responsible for seismological data processing under WP2, combining historical data with OBS data. UiB-GEO will develop and implement new technology for OBS deployment and contribute to QC of OBS data under WP3. It will contribute macroseismic intensity data to WP4 in addition to representing macroseismic data collection as a methodology. UiB-GEO will assure seamless integration of INTAROS data with the EPOS platform under WP5.

Geophysical institute (UIB-GFI): Role in the project

UiB-GFI will be the theme leader of theme biogeochemistry. UiB-GFI will be responsible for management of biogeochemical data (WP 5) and for sea ice observations and interpretation of changes in Arctic sea ice volume (WP 3). It will also contribute to WP1 (stakeholder needs), WP2 (gap analysis), WP6 (demonstration projects) and WP7 (outreach).
