Research and educational partners

Svalbox is hosted by the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and managed by Kim Senger from the Department of Arctic Geology. Much of the recent virtual outcrop data acquisition is conducted in conjunction with ongoing research projects and educational activities at UNIS.
We rely on the willingness and enthusiasm of our project partners to make Svalbox a reality – and are continually seeking new partners that can contribute know-how, data sets or financial support to take Svalbox to the next level.
We are in particular seeking funds to cover bi-annual database updates by our wonderful research assistants at UNIS. Please contact svalbox@gmail.com to get involved!

Data Providers

Svalbox relies on quality and comprehensive datasets – the more goes in, the more powerful it becomes. We at UNIS contribute primarily with virtual outcrop data sets and Svalbard-related publications. However, a number of institutions in particular have provided us with critical data sets to enhance Svalbox.
Public-domain data, as visible on this website, is the foundation for Svalbox. Additional proprietary data sets, or data where confidentiality is important, are included in locked Svalbox projects and used in research projects solely where their use has been clarified with the data owners.
