Fred Sigernes, professor of Optics and Atmospheric Research at UNIS (University Centre in Svalbard) and member of the Birkeland Centre for Space Science, was interviewed on a four-part NRK TV program called “Snowhow: the Nordic Winter.” The series touches on how winter has formed the world we live in and how we humans have adapted to it.
Prof. Sigernes appears in Episode 1, which is set on Svalbard. He gives a tour of the Kjell Henrikson Observatory (KHO) at UNIS which houses over 25 optical instruments. KHO is uniquely situated for research on the middle and upper atmosphere.
