Special trained Dogs
The objective is to study if special trained dogs can be used to detect oil spills hidden in snow or ice

Trondheim Dog Training institute (www.trondheimhundeskole.no) is SINTEFs cooperative partner in this activity and the owner Turid Buvik is responsible for the dog training. Extensive training has been performed in 2007/08 both in laboratories and in the field (Trondheim and Svalbard). The preliminary results are very promising.
