The Bjerknes Centre is a collaboration on climate research, between the University of Bergen, NORCE, the Institute of Marine Research, Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre.

Here it is: the ACDC-film!

Frode Ims at the UiB Division of Communication joined the PhD summer School in Greenland this year. Check out the result here

You can find the film here:

Kerim Nisancioglu was collaborating with Frode Ims in another project this spring. The result of this was that Ims joined the students and teachers at the Disko Island a week in August. Ims has shot and produced the film, but with photography also from Iselin Medhaug and Laurence Dyke.

In early summer, Ims had a training session with participant Mari Fjalstad Jensen who is one of the students portraied in the film, summer school organiser Iselin Medhaug and summer school director Kerim Nisancioglu.


An international PhD training school in Climate Dynamics (ACDC) visits Greenland

The Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) are yearly international research training schools for PhD students organized by the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen in collaboration with the Norwegian Research School in Climate Dynamics (ResClim).
ACDC is a part of the partnership program between the University of Bergen and Universities in North America sponsored by SiU.

The partnership includes the University of Washington in Seattle, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, University of Massachusetts in Amherst, and Memorial University in New Foundland.

Each year students and lecturers visit remote locations to study and discuss current topics within climate science. The school includes field work, group discussion and interdisciplinary lectures by some of the most recognized scientists in the field. In 2014, the focus was on the dynamics of the Greenland ice sheet and the venue for ACDC was Disko Island on the west coast of Greenland.
