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

From autumn 2021, Kerim Nisancioglu's climate and sustainability course enters a whole new campus: aboard the tall ship Statsraad Lehmkuhl, in the Caribbean. But before she sets sail, Meike Becker will install observation instruments to collect data from the sea surface all around the world.

The medal collection of three generations of Bjerknes researchers find their place at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research and the Geophysical Institute at UiB. See the opening June 23rd.

The Arctic sea ice is on the move all year. It expands to its maximum during March and reaches its minimum in September. The variation during the year, and from year to year, depends on wind, weather and ocean currents. But the Arctic is changing.
