Global warming transforms the Arctic cloud cover

The Arctic is one of the cloudiest regions on the Earth. White carpet of clouds typically covers the Arctic during three quarters of year. In summertime, clouds reflect sunlight helping to keep the Arctic cool. In winter time, they capture and backscatter heat making the Arctic warmer than it could be under a clear sky.

Climate change will not reduce the wind energy potential over the Black Sea

Nansen Center scientists in Bergen and St. Petersburg have jointly studied how European wind energy resources may change in the future, with a focus on the Black Sea.
