FORURENS: Models and stable isotopes to quantify sources of nutrients transported by rivers to the sea: atmospheric deposition, land sources

This project will examine scenarios of changes in nutrient fluxes to the sea from atmospheric deposition and land-based sources. Integrated studies will be conducted at two river basins draining to the Norwegian Skagerrak coast; the eutrophic system Vansj ø/Hobøl and the oligotrophic system Tovda...

NORKLIMA-Klimaendringer og konsekvenser for Norge

Constraining total feedback of the climate system by observations and models

Assessing global warming projections on the basis of various future emission scenarios is difficult because a number of key variables in climate change are poorly quantified. In particular, the feedbacks of the climate system when greenhouse-gas concentra tions and aerosols are changing are not w...
