Akademisk lunsj med Helge Drange

Kan det vi i dag ser skyldes naturlige variasjoner, eller er våre klimagassutslipp årsaken? Med snart 8 milliarder mennesker på jorden, virker det nesten håpløst å redusere våre miljø- og klimaavtrykk. Men selv om folk flest er kinesere, betyr ikke dette at klimagassutslippene per nordmenn er små. Under dette foredraget skal professor Helge Drange gi en liten gjennomgang av status – og ser på hvilke aktiviteter som gir utslipp og hva vi kan gjøre.

Helge Drange er professor på Geofysisk institutt ved Universitetet i Bergen, og er forsker ved Bjerknessenteret for klimaforskning.

Akademisk lunsj arrangeres i samarbeid med Universitetsbiblioteket, Høgskulen på Vestlandet og Norges Handelshøyskole.

The Constraints on global warming subgroup

The Constraints on global warming subgroup will meet again Friday, 14 January, 12-13, in U1 (west wing).

Bring your lunch and join the discussion. Bring along anyone whom might be interested.

Ada Gjermundsen (from MET, Oslo) happens to be in Bergen next Friday and has agreed to give an informal presentation of the work she is doing on NorESM2 vs CESM2 Climate sensitivity. This will be a nice follow up from Odd Helges session last week.

(I know I said I would do this time - but since this opportunity came up I will postpone it until mid March. - This was too good of an opportunity not to follow up on).

See you,
Bjørg

Bjerknes Polar Group meeting

Dear all,

Our next Bjerknes Polar Group meeting will be Tuesday the 18th of February at 12:15 in the 4th floor Bjerknes classroom.

During the meeting we will discuss new opportunities and follow up the brainstorming we had at Geilo on the use of KPH starting with the new UiB quota coming online in 2021. The idea of a joint Fram strait cruise was very well received by NP during meetings at Arctic Frontiers.

As usual send 1-2 slides on updates and new papers + highlights of new proposals.
