- NORSAR comprises a unique combination of professionals who have been developing expertise in the field of monitoring and verification for 50 years. We wish to apply this expertise to new challenges in our society, such as the monitoring of unstable rock-slopes and CO2-storage sites. Our expertise in the field of infrasound can also be applied to the monitoring of volcanic eruptions and extreme weather. Nonetheless, we are constantly reminded of our original task - as Norwegian National Data Centre for monitoring compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. When North Korea conduct underground nuclear tests, we record the signals on our stations and can determine exactly where and when the explosions took place, and with which magnitude, says CEO Anne Strømmen Lycke.

Anne Strømmen Lycke has a civil engineering background from The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and is a business graduate from Handelshøyskolen BI. She has also trained in leadership.
