Lars H. Smedsrud has a wide experience in polar oceanography from Arctic and Antarctic waters.Smedsrud leads a network for polar researchers at the University in Bergen and is a professor II at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS).He is a member of the scientic advisory board in the Arctic Ice Project, was the US-Norway Arctic Fulbright Chair 2019-2020, and was for many yearsin the Scientific Steering Group in CliC (Climate and the Cryosphere, World Climate Research Programme) and a coordinator in Arctic ECRA (European Climate Research Alliance).

In March 2000 Smedsrud accomplised his PhD on frazil ice formation and sediment entrainment in polar waters, and has worked with projects related to sea ice formation in the Arctic and melting of ice-shelves in Antarctica since then. Smedsrud has extensive field experience, has been cruise leader during the International Polar Year, participated in several international laboratory experiments, and worked with a number of numerical models. Modelling activity includes circulation in the Arctic Ocean and the Nordic Seas, coupled column modelling of the Arctic Ocean, sub ice shelf circulation under the Fimbul Ice Shelf in Antarctica, polynya dynamics on Svalbard, and export and cover of Arctic sea ice in Global Earth System Models.

Research Areas:

  • Arctic Ocean Modelling 
  • Barents Sea; Atlantisk Inflow, surface fluxes and sea ice cover
  • Sea Ice formation in fjords on Svalbard
  • Water masses of the Southern Ocean and the Weddell Sea, circulation and deep water formation
  • Melting of ice shelves, circulation in sub-ice cavities, Fimbul and Filchner-Ronne ice shelves
  • Incorporation of sedimentents into sea ice
  • Frazil ice crystals, grease ice, pancake ice - freezing processes under high turbulence

Polar Oceanography (GEOF338): The course aims to describe circulation and dynamics of the polar oceans, including the Norwegian- and Greenland Sea. The topics are discussed with respect to climatic variations and compared for the Arctic and Antarctic regions.

Introduction to the atmosphere, ocean and climate (GEOF100): The course gives an introduction to the fundamentals in meteorology, physical oceanography and climatology with emphasis on a qualitative explanation of the physical processes.

Sustainable Arctic Energy (AGF-353/853): The course provides an interdisciplinary survey of tools for assessing the merit, challenges, and risks of different potential renewable energy exploration and development choices in the rapidly changing Arctic.

Air-Ice-Sea Interaction (AGF-311): The course describes processes involved in air-sea exchange of heat and momentum at high latitudes. This includes deep convection and mechanisms for breaking down vertical stratification in the ocean.
