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.

For the first time, the impact of global warming on the Atlantic Niño has been addressed.  The result, published in Nature Climate Change, shows a strong weakening of the sea surface temperature variability. This implies less variations in sea surface temperatures in the future and will affect weather and fisheries along the coast lines on both sides of the South Atlantic Ocean.

New data by ICOS confirms that natural carbon sinks such as the ocean and forests are not stable. Climate change makes these sinks more vulnerable, in some cases even turning them into carbon emitters. This compromises current climate targets and action plans.

Natives of Greenland and the Pacific lead different lives, but have one thing in common. Both communities are strongly affected by climate change.  

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.
