The Arctic is about to shrink, shows a new study, as an important part of the Arctic Ocean shifts over to an Atlantic climate regime. The rapid climate shift occurs in the northern Barents Sea—the Arctic warming hotspot where the surface warming and loss of winter sea ice is largest in the entire Arctic.

At this years one-day PhD seminar, 25 of our PhD candidates from 13 nations and 5 continents (!) assembled to get to know each other within and across the research groups, and get some helpful tips for the years ahead.
The facility will be closed weeks 29 to 31, from 16. July until 6. August due to Summer vacation. Samples to be analyzed before summer must be delivered no later than Friday 13. July, 9am
Can the financial sector be a powerful force in tackling climate change?
I remember reading the following sentence in the announcement of my current post-doc position as part of the dCod project: “The work will involve close collaboration with research groups both from biology and from mathematics”. I thought it was an interesting ambition, but I wasn’t sure how close would this collaboration be and how would it be organized. I guess the scheduled biweekly dCod... Read more
Over the course of three days (9-11 May), seven BCCR and Ice2Ice researchers participated in a glacier safety course on the Folgefonna glacier.
GEO had a strong showing at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Annual Convention and Exhibition held in Salt Lake City, 20-23 May.
In their very first meeting, the board of The Norwegian Marine University Consortium (NMUC) had talks with the executives from the European Marine Board.  The next step is to shape the consortium into a vital bridgehead for cooperation with the EU.
The first AQUACOSM group has arrived at UiB's Marine Biological Station. The international team of scientists are here to study the coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi.
Ferries and fast passenger boats in Western Norway could run on hydrogen produced from waste in the future!
Former EECRG Professor II Kathy Willis has been appointed as the next Principal (=Master or Head of House) of St Edmund Hall, one of the University of Oxford's colleges.
An international research team led by Uni Research Environment and the University of Bergen will explore how filter-feeding zooplankton can trap, ingest, disperse and potentially preserve virus particles in the marine environment.
Understanding the structure and relationships of biomolecules is important for discovering new medicines and materials. Three-dimensional bimolecular structures are often geometrically complex making it difficult to predict functional properties of molecules based on their structures. Recently, the new field of topological data analysis has shown some promise in improving the prediction of... Read more
