Planning Fieldwork

Field work on Spitzbergen is regulated by various provisions, mainly by the Governor of Svalbard. In order to find out whether your planned research requires permissions, please read the guide prepared by Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) and ensure that all permissions needed are delivered to the AWIPEV base leader before your visit.
