We are now preparing for a new semester, and we would like to share with you the program for this autumn. We have many interesting topics planned, and more will be announched. The program will be a variaty of webinars, physical lunch-meetings and half-day seminars, and the format  will be specified for each event.
The young generation in our group works on a range of different topics withing terrestrial and marine microbial ecology. Methodologies include polar field work, genomics and modeling, to name a few.
The ocean industries have the potential to double their economic growth in the next ten years. Meanwhile, the health of the oceans is at stake. SFI Smart Ocean plan to create an ocean observation system which will sustainably ensure economic growth. 
The effects of magmatic intrusions on temperature history and diagenesis in sedimentary basins and petroleum systems.
The department of informatics at the University of Bergen will be well represented with four accepted papers at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence.
Bergen Summer Research School opened 8 June with a record number of participants. Together with some of Bergen's best research milieus, they will explore how their research can contribute to solving global challenges. This year they meet online - watch the many public lectures on YouTube.
As part of an international consortium led by Yan Zhao (Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing), Vivian Felde and John Birks were involved in the publication of a detailed record of past vegetation and climate over the last 1.74 million years from the Tibetan Plateau.
The Jebsen Centre has a new PhD candidate starting today!
Planteplankton og dyreplankton danner et av de viktigste grunnlag for livet på jorda.
Chr. Michelsen Institute and the University of Bergen have a long-standing agreement to strengthen development-related research in Bergen. We now invite applications for collaboration between our two institutions. Deadline 20 June, 2020.
Near the end of the last ice age, the global sea level rose 12–14 meters in less than 350 years. Most of the meltwater has been thought to have come from North America and Antarctica. A new study shows that the ice over coastal Norway and the Barents Sea may have contributed almost as much.
Last month Andreas Beinlich had a publication in Nature Geoscience, and this month we are happy to announce that a new publication from Jebsen Centre researchers is out in Nature Geoscience: Today Jo Brendryen, Bjarte Hannisdal, and Kristian Agasøster Haaga published “Eurasian Ice Sheet collapse was a major source of Meltwater Pulse 1A 14,600 years ago”.
While the COVID-19 hits us badly, we can have some great news too. Chunlei has recently received a grant from the Research Council of Norway’s IKTPLUSS program on the call of ubiquitous data and services. Congratulations to Chunlei!
