In September 2015 it is 100 years since one of the fathers of the modern meteorology was born - Arnt Eliassen (9.9.1915 – 22.4.2000). This is celebrated by DNVA and UiO with a seminar on how fundamental science can change the society. Eliassen is known among other topics for his research on dynamic metheorology, and important contributions to numerical weather forecast.
Researcher Olivier Galland from Department of Geosciences received recently an "Excellence in refereeing Award 2014" from American Geophysical Union (AGU), for his contribution in peer review work for Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth.
Professor Trond Torsvik has been awarded the 2015 Leopold von Buch medal in “recognition and appreciation of outstanding professional contributions to understanding geodynamics”.
Scientists in geodynamics and meteorology from UiO, in collaboration with researchers in geosciences from Bergen, Tromsø and UNIS, received 19.5 million kroner from the Norwegian Research Council (NFR) for a new Research School on “Changing climates in the coupled earth system” (CHESS).
