Research is carried out in collaboration with international institutions and includes:

  • biology of species and their interactions –
  • distribution of populations – through tagging, satellite tracking and genetic analysis.
  • mapping of food availability – by satellite photography, and vegetation and plankton analyses
  • oceanic climate, ocean currents, and sea ice – by satellite photography and measurements of physical and chemical parameters
  • melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet and freshwater flux into the sea – through measurements and photography
