About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The CAGE – Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate Report Series was established to archive the reports and main results gathered between 2013 and 2023. This report series is a collection of annual reports, cruise reports, scientific publications, theses, CAGE website blogs, and science communication. 

CAGE  was active between 2013 and 2023. The aim of CAGE was to contribute research of exceptional quality to the field of Arctic marine geology through our innovative team of world-class researchers and our easy access to Arctic environments.  The main goal for CAGE was to study methane release from gas hydrates beneath the Arctic Ocean in an effort to unveil potential impacts on marine environments and global climate systems.

CAGE was awarded status as a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (CoE) in November 2012 after facing steep competition from 138 other entities from all over the country. The outstanding scientific quality of our research projects secured our status as one of the 13 centres that were granted this prestigious title, guaranteeing 10 years of funding from The Research Council of Norway to conduct important basic research with a long-term scope. CAGE was established by the Department of Geology at UiT, in close cooperation with the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU).
