Oslo, Norway UPSC NOTE


Why In News

  • In March 2024, India’s first winter experience at the Arctic came to a successful end

  • For over a decade, India’s National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research saw no reason for a winter mission to the Arctic. 

  • What changed Indian policy, ostensibly, was scientific data showing that the Arctic was warming faster than previously thought

  • When facts tying catastrophic climatic occurrences in India to the melting of Arctic Sea ice emerged, decision-makers felt compelled to act.

Why In News

  • Himadri, India’s research station in the International Arctic Research Base at Svalbard in Norway, had until then hosted missions only in the summer

  • A winter expedition entails living in the intense cold (as low as -15 degrees Celsius) after a period of rigorous acclimatisation
