    The disappearance of water in the Nordic seas

    The disappearance of water in the Nordic seas

    Kristin Richter, researcher at Norce and the Bjerknes Centre, is looking into the deepwater in the North-Atlantic ocean. With Argo floats and other observation they have found that there is lacking watermasses traveling southwards in the deep ocean. Here you can listen to this research and get to know Kristin Richter and the research she is doing together with her colleagues.

    AI flooding the flooding research

    AI flooding the flooding research

    Jenny Hagen, a young PhD candidate at Geophysical Institute and the Bjerknes Centre, is working with taking flood prediction the next step by introducing artificial intelligence. In this podcast she explain how they can speed up and improve flood prediction, even in a changing climate, by letting the machine learn from historical data.


    Stephen Outten is a researcher at Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.


    Ingjald Pilskog is an associated professor at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences and connected to the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.

    The climate cost of planting trees

    The climate cost of planting trees

    Most people has a good relationship with forests and the uncontrolled logging around the world is taking its toll on both the wildlife, but also the climate. It stand to reason that letting the forests grow and claim land should be unconditionally positive for the planet, but as often it is not so simple.


    Priscilla Mooney, a researcher at NORCE and the Bjerknes centre, talks to our host Stephen Outten and co-host and producer Ingjald Pilskog about the consequences of both the destruction of the forests and the unexpected costs of letting the forests claim the higher latitudes and planting new forests without a proper understanding of the effects.

    Parisavtalen 5 år etter – med direktør Tore Furevik

    Parisavtalen 5 år etter – med direktør Tore Furevik

    Parisavtalen vart vedteken under FNs klimatoppmøte i desember 2015, etter mange års arbeid for gjennomslag for internasjonal klimahandling. I den står det at me skal etterstrebe å halde temperaturauken til under to grader. Kvar er vi no, fem år etterpå?


    Vi skal ikkje ein gong seie orda «2020 har vore eit spesielt år», sagt uttallege gongar sidan mars, og især no i slutten av desember gjenteke i årskavalkadar. For klimaet sin del har det likevel vore første året ein reduksjon i utslepp av CO2 sidan vi byrja å måle utslepp – sjølvsagt av grunnar vi helst skulle ha latt vere å ha gjennomført.


    Tore Furevik, direktør ved Bjerknessenteret, som var i Paris i desember 2015, oppsummerar dei siste fem åras utvikling – både for politikken generelt, og for seg personleg, ei utvikling han meiner har endra han frå pessimist til optimist.


    Du har no lytta til ein podcast frå Bjerknessenteret for klimaforsking.

    Are we melting Antarctica irreversibly?

    Are we melting Antarctica irreversibly?

    The great ice-sheets in Antarctica and Greenland holds many mysteries. David Chandler, a postdoctoral fellow at the Bjerknes Centre and NORCE, are trying together with his colleagues to unravel these mysteries. In this episode David Chandler takes Stephen Outten and Ingjald Pilskog to the Antarctica where we are discussing how global warming are melting the ice-sheet, in some places irreversibly, leading to sea level rise and life altering climate changes to people all over the globe.


    David Chandler is a postdoctoral fellow at NORCE and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.


    Stephen Outten is a researcher at Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.

    Arven etter Nansen – med forskar Marius Årthun

    Arven etter Nansen – med forskar Marius Årthun

    Gratulerer med dagen, Fridtjof Nansen! 10. oktober 2020 ville han ha vært 159 år, og vi holder virket hans i live gjennom samarbeidet i Arven etter Nansen.

    Forsker ved Universitetet i Bergen og Bjerknessenteret Marius snakker om inspirasjonen fra Nansens arbeid og vitenskap, grunnlaget han la for klimavarsling, og forskerrollen da og nå.


    Klimavarsling – en arv etter Nansen

    Oppvarming på 4°C i løpet av de siste 50 årene på Svalbard

    Hvordan kan vi bruke Fridtjof Nansens forskning i dag?
