Unique datasets for open science

The collection of data in the Arctic requires important logistical and financial means. Guided by the principles of open science, our organization is committed to maximize data usage by delivering publicly available quality-assured and quality-controlled data to support cutting-edge research. Data collected from the Amundsen’s central pool of equipment during the annual expedition can provide useful insights on the state of the Arctic climate, on oceanographic and meteorological conditions and on the biodiversity of the ecosystem.

We look forward to following the scientific outcome of the Annual Amundsen Expedition, and to hearing about the work of expedition participants, collaborators, and data users. Please send the reference of your publications to when available.
