GC Rieber stipendiat Tobias Wolf presenterer resultatene fra studien for oppdragsgiver og andre framøtte på Nansensenteret.Nansensenteret har avsluttet en studie for Bergen og Omland havnevesen (BOH). Studien omfatter statistisk analyse av data og numerisk modellering av forholdene i Bergen sentrum som fører til dårlig luftkvalitet om vinteren og sammenlignet disse med situasjoner med mindre luftforurensning.
The workshop is free and open to current and future users of operational sea ice and wave forecast services with a particular interest in navigation close to the ice edge or into the Marginal Ice Zone.

Etter nesten 3 uker i arktisk farvann har KV Svalbard gjennomført alle planlagte forskningsoppgaver for det norsk finansierte UNDER-ICE prosjektet. Alle rigger som skulle opp er nå kommet ombord. Toktleder Hanne Sagen ved Nansen Senter for Miljø og Fjernmåling (NERSC) er særdeles fornøyd med det. - Det er fantastisk at alt har gått så bra. Etter 2 år i sjøen så fikk vi alle instrumenter med oss hele tilbake.
Post-doc Dr. Roshin P. Raj is first author of two publications that provide new knowledge on the mesoscale ocean variability in the Lofoten basin, published in cooperation with colleagues at the Nansen Center, Geophysical Institute at University of Bergen and Cape Peninsula University of Technology in South Africa.

On June 21st and 22nd the joint European Climate Research Alliance (ECRA)/BCCR workshop on Sea Level Change and Coastal Impacts was held in Bergen. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together researchers working on coastal sea level changes, impacts and adaptation.
Two large projects proposals to the Horizon 2020 Blue Growth - Demonstrating an ocean of opportunities call, respectively coordinated by and with major participation from Nansen Center, have today been invited to negotiations with the European Commission. Prof. Stein Sandven coordinates the Integrated Arctic Observing system (INTAROS) project. Prof. Yongqi Gao is a key partner in the Blue-Action: Arctic Impact on Weather and Climate project coordinated by the Danish Meteorological Institute and Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology.

The 2016 European Space Agency (ESA) Living Planet Symposium in Prague, Czech Republic took place during May 9-13, 2016. Living Planet Symposium 2016 followed the previous symposia held in Edinburgh (2013), Bergen (2010), Montreux (2007), Salzburg (2004) and Gothenburg (2001. With some 3000 participants the 2016 symposium has been the largest event in Earth Observation ever organized by ESA. The Nansen Centers in Bergen and St.
Bergen University College and Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center are jointly organizing a “Workshop on Computational Meshes and Applications” at HiB on 23. May.
The goal of the workshop is to gather scientists from the Bergen area working both on mathematical foundations of mesh generation and also with various applications of computational meshes in real-life applications.
The soundscape in the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) is comprised of seismic airgun noise, ship cavitation noise, and natural background noise due to different geophysical processes in the MIZ. Cavitation noise from the research ice-breaker dominated the sound scape at times.
