Field cruise to Karmøy

Researchers at the Geophysical institute (UoB) have, in collaboration with CMR, performed a 4-day field cruise aboard the research vessel Håkon Mosby. The cruise took place during November 13th – 16th, off the coast of Karmøy, Norway. The aim of the cruise was the test of several new oceanographic instruments, which are available for the Offshore Boundary Layer Observatory (OBLO) project. Video by Martin Flügge, CMR.

 

 

 

 

Flying the SUMO at the ECN test site in the Netherlands

The joint ECN/NORCOWE measurement campaign included flying the SUMO - Small Unmanned Meteorological Observer - which has been developed at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Bergen. Video by Valerie Kumer, GFI/UiB.

 

 

 

 

Field Campaign outside Marstein light house, Bergen

The campaign involved the mooring of a met-ocean Wavescan buoy equipped with one of NORCOWE's Direct Covariance Flux systems. The field campaign is part of the research into small-scale turbulent air-sea interaction processes undertaken at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen. Video by Martin Flügge.
