Mennesker påvirker Jorden på en helt annen måte enn før. Vi bruker ressurser, vi dyrker jorden, vi forurenser og endrer på landskapet. Er menneskene blitt en naturkraft som endrer Jorden, spør geolog Henrik H. Svensen, biolog Dag Hessen og sosialantropolog Thomas Hylland Eriksen i en artikkel i Aftenposten Viten.

To kick-off the newly established collaborative project on “Climate, Volcanism, and Tectonics” between the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics and the paleoclimate modeling group at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research we wish to invite to a joint workshop at Geilo. The main aim will be to discuss the potential role of bathymetry on ocean circulation in the causes and nature of extreme climates of the geologic past, and compare these to other possible forcing mechanism such as volcanism.
