LTP Climate, environment and environmentally friendly energy

LTP OBJECTIVES

Climate, the environment and clean energy

This long-term priority under the LTP objective ‘Tackling major societal challenges’ entails essential efforts related to research, innovation and technology for a low-emission society. The target area ‘Environmentally friendly energy and low-emission solutions’ aims to enhance efforts in the area of renewable energy production, energy consumption, energy policy, energy systems and market, and carbon capture and storage. The target area ‘Climate, the environmental and polar regions’ aims to generate knowledge about changes in the climate system, with an emphasis on polar regions, the effect of changes on nature and society, and adaptation measures for a low-emissions society. This also encompasses research on ecosystems and biodiversity, pollution and life cycles, and resource and environmental management. The target area ‘Bioeconomy and resource management’ concerns land-based bioresources, including food production, forestry and utilisation of bioresources. The target area ‘Sustainable cities and transport systems’ aims to enhance research related to city and transport planning, transportation technology, land-use planning and the city districts’ cultural, social and economic importance.

SELECTED PROJECTS

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

Support to arrange the 6th International Conference in Arctic Fox Biology in Longyearbyen, Svalbard 2022

The 6th international conference in arctic fox biology will for the first time be organized and located in Norway. Circumpolar arctic fox biologists have since 1991, established a network that have arranged five international conferences in arctic fox biology. The location for the conference are ...

Project Period: 2022-2022

Location: Troms og Finnmark - Romsa ja Finnmárku - Tromssa ja Finmarkku

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

Attributing climate-change induced global glacier mass loss to anthropogenic and natural causes

This project will bring Dr. Ben Marzeion from the University of Bremen to the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo to collaborate on a research project on investigating anthropogenic versus natural causes in past global glacier mass loss. Glaciers have contributed more to sea-level...

Awarded: NOK 0.29 mill.

Project Period: 2022-2023

Location: Oslo

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

14th International Conference on Paleoceanography

Den internasjonale paleoseanografi konferansen (ICP) er ett flaggskipsarrangement for det paleoseanografiske forskningsmiljøet. ICP er en viktig arena og spiller en sentral rolle for den faglige utviklingen av feltet. Utvalgte inviterte foredrag, der nye grensesprengende ideer legges frem, kombin...

Awarded: NOK 99,999

Project Period: 2022-2022

Location: Vestland

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

Arctic Cryosphere Ocean coupling and rapid climate changes

During my research stay at EAWAG, I will test recently developed climate proxy parameters for ocean temperatures, sea ice, and salinity variations on ocean sediments recovered from the Kongsfjorden, NW Svalbard. Kongsfjorden is ideally placed for reconstructing cryosphere-ocean coupling processes...

Awarded: NOK 0.26 mill.

Project Period: 2022-2023

Location: Trøndelag - Trööndelage

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

Terrestrial record of palaeoceanographic (in)stabilities in the Arctic during the Last Interglacial (~129 to 116 ka)

The project focuses on the instability of Northern Hemisphere ice-sheets, forcing circulation perturbations in the subpolar North Atlantic and contiguous seas, and offers a unique opportunity to test the real dynamics and consequences of such changes. It involves studying the fossil terrestrial r...
