“When you give nature a chance, a difficult situation can quickly be reversed. However, in order to do that, decision-makers must have the knowledge they need to take the right measures” - Anne Larigauderie
By studying the distribution range of plants in mountains globally, researchers at the University of Bergen have tested a new hypothesis that may change our understanding of how plants respond to temperature variation.
In February 2024, we welcomed Hoa Nguyen as a postdoctoral researcher to our team.
Yan Li, an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, has been working on developing theoretical models to predict the occurrence probability of so-called “rogue waves” or “freak waves.” These waves can be approximately three times higher than the average wave height and are extremely dangerous for ships and other marine operations.
This paper describes a machine learning-based approach to tuning the linear solvers and their parameters during the simulation.

A new article from the Christiaen group offers crucial insights into the onset of zygotic gene expression in the germline of Ciona, uncovering a two-step model for genome activation.
Our new Ph.D. student Isak Hammer went to visit TU Delft for the European geothermal PhD days 2024.
Bergen Aquarium hosted an inaugural event for their latest exhibit, "Havet i endring" or "The Changing Ocean." The new installation features a 1200L aquarium showcasing jellyfish generously gifted by the Centre.
This spring, the UNESCO Chair group has been working with collecting positive future visions for sustainable nature, land-use and cultural landscapes. Most recently, workshops were held with students from two different high schools in Nordhordland biosphere reserve.
We are excited to welcome two new PhD students in CeSAM; Janne Thomsen and Marte Klemetsdal will both be working closely within the CeSAM community.
The University of Bergen's communication section has an overview of local experts on various topic. We have now included CeSAM researchers in these lists, especially under the heading 'Nature deal, IPBES (naturpanelet), Nature Crisis and Natural Resources'.
Jan Martin Nordbotten will give an invited talk at InterPore 2024 about validating computational models for carbon storage. The main theme of InterPore 2024 will be porous media and biology.
