Development of geophysical scale sea ice constitutive models involving exchange of mass, momentum and energy between the atmosphere, sea-ice field and ocean. The objective is to derive descriptions of sea-ice fracture and kinematics and processes that dictate the thickness redistribution due to opening, closing, ridging and rafting of the ice field. The outcome will improve the knowledge and predictions of the climate impact of sea ice dynamical processes and the role of sea-ice in the Arctic Change due to global greenhouse

The Centre for Retail Studies is a non-profit organisation with the mission to reinforce the Icelandic retail, tourism and service sector’s competitiveness. All our research and development activities aim to provide practical solutions to these industries and its employees’.
Fields of activities
We have long experience in collaboration with Scandinavian and European knowledge centres and can offer a wide expertise and recent knowledge of which service industries can gain from. Examples of research projects funded by the Northern periphery Programme is “Retail in Rural Regions” (2008-2011) and “Tourist Guide for Northern Periphery” (2010-2013).
