Ny rapport om bidragene til luftforurensing fra skip i Bergen havn

GC Rieber stipendiat Tobias Wolf presenterer resultatene fra studien for oppdragsgiver og andre framøtte på Nansensenteret.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.

SWARP User Workshop 28th - 29th Sept.

NERSC is hosting a two-days training workshop in the framework of the European SWARP project, on waves and ice forecasting in the Marginal Ice Zone.

Deadline for registration: Friday 16th Sept.

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.

UNDER-ICE tokt til Framstredet med KV Svalbard

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.

The soundscape in the Marginal Ice Zone

Youtube movie - UNDER-ICE acousticsThe 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.

Satellite archives reveal abrupt changes in behavior of Helheim Glacier at Greenland

A new publication in Journal of Glaciology reveals the importance of internal dynamical process in the abrupt changes of the Helheim and other glaciers at Greenland during the last 35 years. Nansen Center and Bjerknes Center scientists Victoria Miles, Martin Miles and Ola M. Johannessen have published the paper Satellite archives reveal abrupt changes in behavior of Helheim Glacier, southeast Greenland.

Understanding why nights are getting warmer faster than days

Observations from the last fifty years have shown that the nights have been warming much faster than the days. Analysis of the causes of this more rapid warming at night shows that this is likely to continue in the coming decades.
