Projects

  • NAPEX Precipitation is arguably the most direct link between the climate and human society. We depend upon existing precipitation patterns for fresh water and food production, and global infrastructure is designed to withstand current precipitation extremes.
  • HYPRE - HYdropower and PREcipitation trends Investigating historical and future precipitation trends in regions important for hydropower production
  • Bio4Clim Comparative climate impact assessment of the forest based bio-economies of Norway, Sweden and Finland
  • MOCA: Methane Emissions from the Arctic OCean to the Atmosphere The MOCA project will enhance understanding of the present atmospheric effects of methane released from dissociation of gas hydrates in Arctic seabed sediments, and will also inform on the future potential impacts in a warming climate on decadal to centennial timescales.
  • Impact of absorbing Aerosols on Radiative forcing in the European Arctic The climate impact of absorbing aerosols, such as black carbon particles originating from fossil fuel combustion or biomass burning, mineral dust and volcanic ash, is still very poorly understood especially its role in the atmosphere of polar regions.
  • ICOS-Norge Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS)-Norway and Ocean Thematic Centre (OTC)
  • SUPER - SUb-daily Precipitation Extremes in highly-populated Regions The main objective of SUPER is to quantify the influence of anthropogenic activity on sub-daily extreme precipitation in highly populated regions
  • Quantifying Climate Impacts of Future Forest Management Strategies in Norway The international community has agreed that the increase in global temperature must be limited to 2°C above the pre-industrial levels. Meeting this ambitious goal requires a large-scale shift away from the fossil economy towards one based on renewable materials and energy like biomass.
