Global CO2 emissions have increased from last year. This brings both emissions and the CO2 content in the atmosphere to a record high.

At Bryggen Museum for the next six months, KlimaNinja has taken on the role of exhibition guide. The exhibition takes you on a city tour among knowledgeable residents of Bergen from the 13th century to the present day, right up to the office of Elin Darelius at the Geophysical Institute.

Another ERC Synergy Grant for Bergen, Norce and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. The i2B - Into the Blue project looks into the past and forward to the future, and is a collaboration between research community in Trømsø, Bergen and Bremerhaven. 

Storms striking at times of high tides have sent the sea through Norwegian streets the last decades. If the same weather had passed another day, the sea could have risen higher, a new study suggests.

Is there a connection between reduced sea ice in the Arctic and waves of cold weather over northern Eurasia? The scientific community has debated this for over a decade. Bjerknes Centre researchers now propose a framework to bridge the alternate views.

Art can make climate change easier to grasp. As part of a current research project, an exhibition at the Bergen art museum Kode features climate art from Greenland and the Pacific.

What does one keep around when looking back at a long career? We celebrate Professor Emeritus John Inge Svendsen.

Kjetil Våge and ROVER  investigate the consequences of a changing climate along the sea-ice edge off the east coast of Greenland. The European Research Council supports his efforts with a prestigious ERC Consolidator Grant

The North Atlantic Ocean oscillates between warm and cool decades. A century is too short to show why. Climate models and old seashells will extend the measurement series to the Viking age.

Climate scientist Eystein Jansen has been elected vice-president of the European Research Council (ERC). He is the first Norwegian researcher to join the leadership of the elite division for European research.

Predicting future fisheries is possible only if the present conditions are known. An international team of scientists works to reduce the South Atlantic's lag behind the North.

Climate models produce enormous amounts of data. These are too large to handle for ordinary people, and too costly to run on large super computers. A new cooperation on machine learning and AI looks to solve the problem.
