Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) is an independent non-profit research institute affiliated with the University of Bergen, Norway. The Nansen Center conducts basic and applied environmental research funded by national and international governmental agencies, research councils and industry. NERSC's vision is to make a significant contribution to the understanding, monitoring and forecasting of the world's environment and climate on regional and global scales. This is done through coordination and participation in national and international research programs focusing on amongst other studies of global and regional climate processes using numerical models together with observations from earth-monitoring satellites and field experiments, and studies of sea ice processes using coupled numerical models and observations from satellite.
