Experienced atmospheric scientist and leader of multi-disciplinary research groups

Dr. Jan S. Fuglestvedt is an experienced leader of multi-disciplinary research groups with an extensive network of international collaborators, and his perspectives goes beyond the natural sciences. He has centered his research on emissions, atmospheric chemistry and climate interactions, carbon-cycle, modelling of atmospheric and climatic impacts of different human activities, i.e., impacts by component, source and sector – in particular the climate impact of the transport sectors. This includes studies of methods for, and quantifications of, contributions from sectors, nations and regions to climate change and its potential use in development of multi-gas climate policies and mitigation strategies. He also works on development and evaluation of emission metrics for comparing different emissions, as a basis for policymaking and international climate agreements. Further, he has actively contributed to research on the effects of short-lived climate forcers and their potential role in mitigation policies.

During the AR5 cycle he was Lead Author (LA) for WGI on the chapter on Anthropogenic and Natural Radiative Forcing, member of the Core Writing Team of the Synthesis Report, and Contributing Author (CA) in WGIII. He participated in 3 approval meetings and contributed to the Summary for Policymakers for WGI, WGIII and the Synthesis Report.

 

Full CV

  • Appointed to the Norwegian Minister of Climate and Environment's Climate Advisory Board
  • CICEROs Principal Investigator in research projects funded by the European Commission
  • Heavily involved in the UNFCCC-initiated process on modelling and assessment of contributions to climate change (MATCH) as co-chair of the Scientific Coordination Committee
  • Member of the current Impacts and Science Group (ISG) of the Committee for Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
  • Member of the Expert Panel for the initiative “Global guidance on environmental life cycle impact assessment indicators”, which aims to revise and update the frameworks of environmental impact indicators in Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA). Initiated by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC)
  • Contributed to WMO/UNEP Ozone Assessment reports as Lead Author, Contributing Author and reviewer

Projects

  • ACCRI CIC-MOD The objective of the ACCRI CIC-MOD project is to investigate how aviation emissions in different regions affect the atmosphere and climate on regional and global scales.
  • Bio4Clim Comparative climate impact assessment of the forest based bio-economies of Norway, Sweden and Finland
  • The role of short-lived climate forcers in the golbal climate regime The primary objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive assessment of the potential of mitigation of Short-Lived Climate Forcers (SLCFs) in the emerging global climate regime.
  • Governing EU-Norwegian willingness to extract, combust and consume less carbon The objective of this project is to identify how to best coordinate policies in the EU and Norway to maximise the overall effectiveness of their combined initiatives. A key challenge for unilateral policy initiatives in a global market place, even for a big coalition like the EU, is carbon leakage and competitiveness concerns.
  • EVA - Earth system modelling of climate Variations in the Anthropocene EVA will provide a cutting-edge version of the Norwegian Earth system model NorESM for global climate assessments (CMIP6, IPCC AR6) including prognostic climate experiments and analyses of key importance for the national and international community
  • 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.
