In the frame of the new Nordic Center of Excellence on Ensemble Based Monitoring and Forecasting of the Environment, the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) is opening one position in the modeling and data assimilation department of the Mohn-Sverdrup Center. The position is funded for a period of three years and in principle intended for a PhD candidate, but can be converted to a Post-Doc if there is no qualified PhD candidate available.
The Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center is offering a 2-year Post-doc fellowship position in physical oceanography in collaboration with the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen. The candidate should hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) in physical oceanography, applied mathematics, or related fields. Good knowledge and skills with computer tools, software and programming are required. It is desirable that applicants are well familiar with the use of satellite remote sensing data, the ocean circulation of the northern seas, and model evaluation as referred to below.
The India-European workshop addressing the state of the art research on "Monsoon and ocean variability, Climate change & Sea level variations" gathers about 60 Indian and European scientists for three days at Bolgatty Palace in Kochi (India) from 11 – 13 November 2013. The workshop is being carried out under the auspices of EC-FP7 Inco-Lab project INDO-MARECLIM – The Indo-European research facilities for studies on Climate and Marine ecosystem in India.
Young Indian and European scientists and students studies the interactions between climate change, marine ecosystem and coastal zone management during the one week long European Commission FP7 INDO-MareClim winter school in Cochin, India.

Forsker Jan Even Øie Nilsen ved Nansensenteret har gjort nye analyser for hvor høyt vannet kommer til å stå, både ved høyvann og stormflo, langs norskekysten i løpet av dette århundret. Havnivåstigningene er analysert sammen med kulturminnekunnskap. Konklusjonene er at mange av våre kulturminner langs kysten står i fare for å bli skadet av et økende havnivå utover i dette århundret.

Nansensenteret på Forskningstorget.Nansensenteret deltar på Forskningstorget under Forskningsdagene i Bergen. I vår forskning benytter vi oss av målinger, observasjoner, satellitt fjernmåling og numeriske hav- og atmosfæremodeller til studier av miljøet og klimaet på jorda. Besøk vår "stasjon" på fredag og lørdag på Festplassen og lær mer om vår forskning og møte våre forskere.
Nansensenterets Europeiske is-informasjonssystem Arctic-ROOSobserverer årsminimum for sjøisarealet i Arktis på 4,588 millioner kvadratkilometer den 11. september. Isarealet i år er ca 50% større enn den absolutte minimumsrekorden som ble rapportert for ett år siden i 2012 da arealet var rekord lite med 2,97 millioner km2.

You probably knew that the sea ice attenuates the propagation of waves. You may also have heard that waves are able to break mechanically the sea ice into smalle floes. But you may not know that these combined effects can be incorporated into realistic numerical models, nor how. If indeed you are living in such shameful ignorance, rejoice! Williams et al.
Manging Director Stein SandvenThe Board of the Nansen Center has in its meeting today unanimously appointed Prof. Stein Sandven as the new Managing Director of the Center. Sandven has been employed at the Nansen Center since its foundation in 1986 and has among others held the positions as leading scientist, research director and managing director.
The NVP-Nansen summer school 2013 “Shipping in Arctic Water: The interaction of sea ice, ship technology, climate change, economy and other operational conditions” will be organized in Longyearbyen at Svalbard from 18th to 26th August. 32 international graduate & postgraduate students are selected to participate. The final program for the summer school is attached here to.
