Last week, the Department of Earth Science hosted a successful workshop on "Greenland ice sheet stability: lessons from the past". The workshop attracted 70 international participants from various disciplines and institutions. The main goal of the workshop was to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange of ideas on the past, present and future of the Greenland ice sheet.
Can CT scanning be used to better determine the magnitude of past volcanic eruptions? The answer is a resounding yes, according to a new study in Nature Communications by Willem van der Bilt with colleagues.
The Department of Earth Science has in recent months acquired several state of the art drones for performing high-resolution mapping in 2D and 3D.
20 students from 12 countries have been exploring different ways to monitor the cryosphere in the Semi-Arid Andes of Chile.
Kikki Kleiven follows Tore Furevik as the direcor of Bjernes Centre, and will lead 200 climate researchers the coming four years.
When the last ice age was over, a large glacier covering the 1000 meter deep Hardangerfjord collapsed. These events at the end of the ice age in Norway, resemble what we are about to witness in today’s Greenland.
Temperature in the Southern Ocean was more tightly linked to the extent of Antarctic glaciation during past greenhouse climates than previously thought.
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.
During the coldest years of the last ice-age the ice cap reached the British Isles and Polen. New research has revealed that an ice-free green spot existed further north - on a penisula close to Spitsbergen.
Lauritzen is recognized for seminal and ongoing contributions to the field of speleothem science
For two intense weeks,students and lecturers from around the world gathered in the small town of Yosemite National Park to discuss climate science as part of the ACDC summer school
Nora Loose disputerer for ph.d.-graden med tittelen: ”Adjoint Modeling and Observing System Design in the Subpolar North Atlantic" (27.08.2019)
The Advanced Climate Dynamic Courses is celebrating their 10th year anniversary this March by having an alumni conference held in Rondane, Norway.
Forskerne fant nøkkelen til å forklare hvorfor istidene ble lengre og mer intens i midt pleistosen ved å analysere 169 meter med marin leire fra Sørishavet. I en artikkel for det internasjonalt anerkjente tidsskriftet Science, bidrar (Helga) Kikki Flesche Kleiven fra Institutt for geovitenskap og Bjerknessenteret sammen med kollegaer fra Sveits, Tyskland, USA og England til å forklare hvorfor...
