The Mars group at the Niels Bohr Institute is an experimental research group working with exploration of the Martian surface.
Our research is focused on the mineral composition of the soil, rocks and particularly the airborne dust on Mars. An essential activity is our direct participation in experiments on Mars lander and rover missions for which we design and build various science instruments and experiments.
By analysing ice cores drilled from deep inside the Greenland ice sheet, researchers have started to calculate how much Arctic sea ice there was in the past. The results have just published in the research journal Scientific Reports.
Deep Space is a project that will use a new specially designed telescope to look far into space in order to observe radiation from the early universe. The equipment will be placed at Summit in the middle of the Greenland ice...
New research shows that human pollution of the atmosphere with acid is now almost back to the level that it was before the pollution started with industrialisation in the 1930s. The results come from studies of the Greenland ice sheet.
