The Nansen Remote Sensing Center (NRSC) is named after Fridtjof Nansen (1861–1930), the Norwegian arctic oceanographer, zoologist and diplomat who in 1922 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his outstanding humanitarian work for the refugees from the first world war. The NRSC was initiated by Ola M. Johannessen at Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen and founded January 1, 1987. The center is affiliated with the University of Bergen, where the director of NRSC holds a chair in oceanography and remote sensing.
