The Nansen Legacy conducts extensive field sampling campaigns, using a multitude of different methods to sample and measure the physical, chemical and biological components of the ecosystem of the northern Barents Sea. To ensure methodological agreement between the involved researchers, as well as continuity and comparability between data throughout the five years sampling period, the Nansen Legacy has developed detailed sampling protocols.

The sampling protocols have also proven to be a helpful tool for coordination and integration with other Arctic sampling efforts, and the project is therefore happy to share its protocols with all interested.
