Frostbite BIGMED activities will support and benefit from current initiatives in Norwegian military medicine to investigate the use of big data methodologies to better understand medical challenges to cold weather and arctic operations. Cold and frost injuries in the Norwegian Armed Forces are estimated to affect as much as 2% of the conscripted soldiers on an annual basis. A ten years cohort based on the military medical records is planned to be investigated based on methods made available through the BigMed project, illuminating aspects of big data series.
