About Us

Lofoten Research is a collaboration of international research projects deploying new technologies and modeling to answer long standing questions in marine ecosystem. Our team of international scientists is working together to understand biophysical, biogeochemical, and ecological interactions in one of the most productive ecosystems of the world - the Lofoten-Vesterålen marine ecosystem - and beyond.

Lofoten Research is a contributing partner responsible for ecosystem knowledge in the SFI Harvest project

Our research embraces non-invasive sampling methods to collect data and observations in near real-time with minimal disturbances to marine life. We use gliders, LOPC, satellite images, modeling, particle modeling, autonomous vehicles, and acoustics in our research.
