When a fishing vessel sets course for Bear Island, the captain knows only which areas are ice-covered now, not where the ice will be tomorrow. In a few years, sea ice predictions will make routing easier and safer.

The oxygen level in the global ocean has declined, limiting the living space of fish. New research is aimed at improving future oxygen projections.

The Research Council of Norway funds eight new project on Chinese-Norwegian climate research in the Arctic. Five of these, awarded a total of NOK 50 million, are led by researchers affiliated by the Bjerknes Centre. Forskningsrådet deler ut åtti millioner til norsk-kinesisk samarbeid om klimaforskning i Arktis. Femti av disse går til Bjerknessenterets forskere.

With equipment normally found in hospitals, geologists can analyze material quicker. Jan Magne Cederstrøm writes about the use of CT scans in a study of debris transported by glaciers.

In the last decades, little sea ice in the Arctic in fall has been associated with cold winters in Europe. A new study signals little reason to prepare for frosty nights and heavy snow, despite less than normal ice in the north.

Our beloved and highly esteemed colleague and friend Yongqi Gao died peacefully at home Friday 23 July. He leaves behind his wife, son, and daughter.

Mighty floods have carved out deep canyons on Earth. New research suggests this required less power than previously believed. Collecting such data, however, may be demanding. 

The Norwegian Government's Longship project and the work of storing CO2 under the seabed in the North Sea depend on it: That we have methods to detect leaks and secure the stocks. Now we are one step closer to the goal.

Injecting particles into the atmosphere would reduce the temperature increase. But for the world’s ecosystems there is no alternative to mitigation efforts.

Sea level variations in Northern Europe are influenced by winds high above the Atlantic, new study shows. In the western part of the North Sea, the wind direction is more important than the wind speed.
