Remote Sensing

Emily Down

Emily Down is based in Tromsø and works in the Department of Remote Sensing and Data Management in the Research and Development Division, for the OSI SAF sea ice monitoring service. She has worked mainly with sea ice type and drift.

Alistair Everett

Alistair Everett is a software engineer in the Norwegian Ice Service. Alistair is employed as part of the Horizon 2020 ExtremeEarth project and is working to develop the systems used for daily production of the ice charts, as well as providing support for daily operations.

Frode Dinessen

Frode Dinessen works in the Division for Remote Sensing and Data Management at MET-Norway in Tromsø. He has been working with satellite remote sensing data since 1997. Currently his main research focus is on development of a operational multi-sensor sea ice concentration product by combining satellite data from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and passive microwave radiometers. He is also engaged in development of a national data hub for Sentinel data.

Atle Sørensen

Atle Sørensen works in the Division for Remote Sensing and Data Managment at the Norwegien Meteorological Institute. He has worked within remote sensing since 2012, mostly with sea ice concentration derived from passive microwave satellite data.

Nick Hughes

Nick Hughes is leader of the Norwegian Ice Service and is based at the Division for Forecasting in Tromsø and is responsible for the daily operation of the Ice Service and for project management including the development of new data processing algorithms and information services. Hughes has 21 years experience in Arctic and Antarctic research including 15 field campaign.

Mari Anne Killie

Mari Anne Killie works in the Division for Remote sensing and data management at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. She has a Ph. D. in astrophysics (2006) from the University of Oslo, and has been working on remote sensing of snow since 2007.

Øystein Godøy
