Planning Fieldwork

Doing research out of Ny-Aalesund needs to follow certain rules and regulations.
The Norwegian Polar Institute and NySMAC have prepared a 

Researcher's Guide to Ny-Aalesund  (pdf-version)

 

Field work on Spitsbergen 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.
