    On ENSO Theory

    Seminar by Prof. Fei-Fei Jin from University of Hawaii

    10:00 — 11:00

    The fundamental dynamical mechanisms of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO)phenomenon have been extensively studied since Bjerknes envisioned ocean-atmosphere interaction in the equatorial Pacific as its main cause. This talk provides […]

    Identifying the Garden of Eden

    Seminar by Prof. Vanessa M. Hayes from University of Sydney

    10:00 — 11:30

    Archaeological and genetic data concur that anatomically modern humans (AMHs or Homo sapiens sapiens) arose in Africa some 200 thousand years ago (ka). However, the exact birthplace and the reasons for […]

    How can we tell how glaciers vary over time?

    Seminar by Dr. Øyvind Paasche from Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research

    10:00 — 11:00

    Mountain glaciers are still abundant in high-latitude, high-altitude areas on Earth. Their presence in the landscape, and dynamic behaviour, are intimately linked to the local climate. From observations we know […]

    Strengthened linkages between Arctic and Asian in boreal winter

    Seminar by Prof. Tore Furevik from Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research

    10:00 — 11:00

    I will discuss recent and ongoing works on the warming of the Arctic in boreal winter, most pronounced in the northern Barents and Kara Seas, and its linkages to east […]

    Controlling calcium carbonate preservations during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum

    Seminar by Dr. Megumi Chikamoto from Utah State University / University of Hawaii

    10:00 — 11:30

    Ocean biogeochemistry in paleoclimate history exhibits abrupt changes in calcium carbonate preservations after CO2 emissions. During the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) period, for example, the calcium carbonate (CaCO3) content was […]

    The risks of changing cryospheric environments on nature and society

    Seminar by Dr. Hanna Lee from Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research

    14:00 — 15:00

    Cryosphere is where water is in its solid form. The cryosphere is changing faster than global mean under current and future warming scenarios and has great consequences to the feedback […]

    Process-oriented diagnostics of tropical cyclones in global climate models

    Seminar by Dr. Yumin Moon from University of Washington

    14:00 — 15:00

    Characteristics of tropical cyclones (TCs) in global climate models (GCMs) are known to be influenced by details in model configurations, including horizontal resolution and parameterization schemes. Understanding model-to-model differences in […]

    Climate impacts and societal resilience in the Mediterranean of the last millennium; the cases of medieval Byzantium and Ottoman Little Ice Age crisis

    Seminar by Dr. Elena Xoplaki from University of Giessen

    09:30 — 11:00

    We address the possible causal relationships between climatic andsocio-economic change and assess the resilience of the medieval Byzantium and the Little Ice Age Ottoman Empire socio-economic systems in the context […]
