SIOS Logistical Services

Logistical support

SIOS supports researchers in its network by providing providing information and facilitating access to existing services in Svalbard. The logistics service supports SIOS members and participants in SIOS projects before, during and after field campaigns.

If you have spare capacity in conjunction with a field campaign, why not offer it to the SIOS community via the Logistics Sharing Notice Board? This tool can also be used to request help from other SIOS members.

Please contact the SIOS Access and Logistics Officer

  • to make use of these services;
  • for complex queries, or if the service you require is not listed.
