Storms, ocean currents, raindrops, avalanches, heat waves and CO2 exchange, it all boils down to physics. At the Geophysical Institute (GFI) we explore the driving forces of nature.
The GFI is an internationally acknowledged contributor to the development of marine research and weather forecasting methods, including the Bergen School of Meteorology. The department is an integral part of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR), a National Centre of Excellence (CoE) and hosts the Research school on changing climates in the coupled earth system (CHESS). The research strategy rests upon use of own cutting-edge measurement techniques developed in collaboration with technology partners in combination with theoretical studies and modelling in geophysics.
