Studying Auroras with Hearts in the Ice

From September 2019 to May 2021 Sunniva Sorby and Hilde Strom spent a total of 18 months living in a remote trappers cabin called “Bamsebu” located in Svalbard, isolated and 140 km from the closest neighbour. Throughout the time, they took part in over a dozen citizen science projects, including observing the auroras. They'll share their experiences during the long polar nights, observing and studying the incredible nightly shows.

Also joining to talk some aurora science will be Fred Sigernes. Fred is a full Professor in optics and atmospheric research at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and chief of the Kjell Henriksen Observatory. His main expertise is spectroscopy with focus on aurora, and he recently helped develop a new app for forecasting the appearance of auroras.
