Visiting research fellows in 2013
Nine guest scientists will visit Bergen in 2013 under the auspices of the Bjerknes Visiting Fellow Programme
Summer school for climate researchers
Each year young scientists spend some weeks at summer school to learn even more about climate research. This year’s ACDC will be held in Vesterålen.
Circulation changes in a warmer ocean
In a new study, scientists suggest that the pattern of ocean circulation was radically altered in the past when climates were warmer.
Getting new impulses abroad
Camille Li has left the Bjerknes Centre and Bergen for a few months, choosing New York to learn even more about climate research.
Valuable feedback for the future
The Scientific Advisory Council is impressed by the progress in the Centre for Climate Dynamics

SKD director appointed program committee leader of the new NORKLIMA
The committee will delineate the scientific contents of the new national programme on climate research - NORKLIMA to be launched in 2013 under the auspices of the Research Council of Norway (RCN).
Enhanced melting of Northern Greenland in a warm climate
In a new study from the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, scientists show how the northern part of the Greenland ice sheet might be very vulnerable to a warming climate
SKD days 2012
The SKD days 2012 wil be held on November 28-29 and will gather the Bjerknes climate research community with members of the international Scientific Advisory Committee specially invited for the occasion.
Norway continues to support research on climate change
The Norwegian government increases its support to climate change research by increasing SKD´s annual budget with 5 mill NOK.
SKD scientist acknowledged by AGU editors
Dr. Camille Li has been awarded the AGU 2011 Editors´ Citations for Excellence in Refereeing
A decade of excellence in climate research
It was 10 years ago that the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research was awarded the status of National Center of Excellence by the Research Council of Norway. This will be commemorated with an international conference 3-6 September in Bergen that will gather a number of world acknowledged experts.
Open day at Dovre
On the 25th of August the Bjerknes scientists invite all nature enthusiasts to the newly opened Snøheim for an open day with lectures on weather, climate and geology.
Four more years for ‘ACDC’
Seventy Ph.D. students competed for the 25 places at this year’s Advanced Climate Dynamic Courses (ACDC) Summer School at Dovre. And now, renewed funding means that there will be summer school next year and beyond.
Heat loss strengthens the gyre circulation
A new study from the Bjerknes Centre explains decadal variations in the oceanic circulation south of Greenland and Iceland.

The brand new SKD team
All members of the SKD core group are finally appointed. Meet them and find out what they do
A fruitful collaboration at summer school
A group of early career scientists discussed climate model results and proxy data at the ACDC 2011 summer school, and decided to condense the discussion to a short article. The article was published in the beginning of April.
Understanding Atlantic and Pacific jet stream fluctuations
A recent study by Bjerknes Centre scientists demonstrates the link between observed fluctuations of atmospheric jet streams and the theoretical concepts that describe why jet streams exist.
Wind and sea surface height reveal changes in warm water inflow
The flow of warm water from the northern North Atlantic to the Nordic Seas is important for the regional climate. It contributes to the mild temperatures in our region and supplies nutrients to the marine ecosystem. By means of sea surface height observations it is possible to estimate a large part of the variability of the inflow, also back in time.
The official opening of SKD
"This is an important milestone for Bergen, Norway's climate capital" stated the Norwegian Minister of Higher Education, Tora Aasland as she declared the Centre for Climate Dynamics officially opened.
Kick off for research activities at Centre for Climate Dynamics (SKD)
More than 40 people gathered Thursday last week at GFI´s East Wing Auditorium to mark the launch of the seven research activities at the Centre for Climate Dynamics.
