New book co-authored by NERSC researchers with ARCPATH project

This month, the book “Nordic Perspectives on the Responsible Development of the Arctic: Pathways to Action” was published, and two chapters have significant contributions from some of our researchers that are active in the ARCPATH project.

New “Young Research Talents” project led by NERSC started in October: CoRea!

CoRea stands for “Coupled reanalysis of the climate back to 1850”. This project is led by Yiguo Wang from the Climate Dynamics and Prediction group. It is his first time leading a research project himself: Congratulations, Yiguo!

 

On Thursday the 15th of October, the CoRea members met in Bergen – and online – to kick off the project. CoRea will run over the course of three years, and it has national and international partners.

New article on the Arctic surface climate in CMIP6

Richard Davy and Stephen Outten (NERSC) published an article in the Journal of Climate, titled “The Arctic Surface Climate in CMIP6: Status and Developments since CMIP5”. Their work shows how phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) has improved from phase 5, with regard to the representation of Arctic climate in the models used in CMIP.

 

CoRea: Coupled reanalysis of the climate back to 1850

The CoRea is a "Young Research Talents" Project funded by the Research Council of Norway. 

In order to understand what drives climate variability and to better disentangle anthropogenic from natural variability, one mostly has to rely on climate model simulations. This is because observational data are sparse and not evenly distributed over time and geographically. Reanalysis provides a continuous three-dimensional reconstruction of climate variability by making best use of observational data to constrain model dynamics, using a mathematical method called data assimilation.

Podcast with Igor Ezau – Heatwaves, the weather that can kill thousands in developed countries

Stephen Outten and Ingjald Pilskog host the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research podcast and recently talked to Igor Ezau about heatwaves and their dangers. Don’t miss this episode!

 

Scientific breakthrough: Winter climate in Norway now more predictable

Scientists from the Bjerknes Climate Prediction Unit, affiliated with the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, and the University of Bergen, contributed to a recent publication in Nature. The results indicate that it is possible to predict how the atmospheric circulation above the North Atlantic will evolve during the next decade. This is crucial for better predicting the winters in Europe and Eastern North America.
