CBA is one of the partners behind a new exhibition about changes in climate and nature at the Mountain Center in Lom opening June 24th.
Today, the Norwegian Research Council announced which applications are through to the second round for new Centres of Excellence. The CBA application for Centre for Arctic Climate Transitions is one of them.
CBA leader Dag O. Hessen is a co-author on a newly published study in Nature Climate Change on habitat changes in lakes caused by rising temperatures.
New research from the Borgå group led by Clare Andvik shows that new toxic chemicals can be transferred directly from mother to offspring in killer whales.
The last months, contributions to the Intergovernmental panel on climate change has been a main task for two CBA researchers.
Today, Centre for biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene launches our annual report for 2020.
CBA centre coordinator Lene Liebe Delsett has launched a new book this week. It is in Norwegian and called Brennmaneteffekten – Hvordan går det med den norske naturen? (ENG: The Jellyfish effect – Is the Norwegian nature doing well?), published by Spartacus.
Ecological memory recognises the importance of previous stress encounters in promoting community tolerance and thereby enhances ecosystem stability, provided that gained tolerances are preserved during non-stress periods.
In a recent study in Marine Pollution Bulletin, Xue Lin and colleagues looked at the distribution and ecological risks of one plastic polymer (PET) and one phthalate plasticizer (DEHP) in the Jiaozhou Bay in China. CBA professor Rolf D. Vogt is one of the co-authors.
In a new review paper, researchers have summarized the evidence for Arctic climate change and the effects on the carbon cycle. They also re-evaluated some of the observational evidence for changing Arctic carbon budgets. CBA scientist Frans-Jan Parmentier is a co-author of the study, which was published in Current Climate Change Reports.
CBA welcomes a new PhD student!
CBA chemistry professor Armin Wisthaler has been interviewed by Titan about his and colleagues' research about atmospheric chemistry.
Microplastic pollution has caused attention worldwide. One of the challenges when studying this type of pollution in soil and sediments, is to separate the microplastic particles from the remainder of the sample. A new study recently published online in the peer-reviewed journal Science of the Total Environment presents a possible solution.
Yesterday, CBA leader Dag O. Hessen won two awards in the major literature award, Brageprisen.
CBA researchers has co-authored a study on lakes now published in Scientific Reports. The results demonstrate a general increase in surface temperature in a global analysis of lakes, while a more variable and unpredictable change in deepwater temperatures. This has major implications for thermal stability and stratification, as well as responses in dissolved gases and thermal habitats for fish and other organisms.
Professor Marten Scheffer is a member of the scientific advisory board of CBA and gave a talk about transformation in society last week.
Nicolas Valiente Parra, who is a postdoctoral fellow at CBA, have just published a new study in Applied Geochemistry about pollution attenuation in evaporitic karst aquifers.
Professor Alexander Eiler ved CBA skal kartlegge hva som finnes i ferskvann, blant annet for å oppdage skadelige organismer. Nå er han intervjuet i Titan om prosjektet.
CBA associate professor Heleen de Wit, also at NIVA, just published a new study in Hydrological Processes about fluxes of nitrogen and phosphorus in headwater catchments.
A new paper in Nature geoscience by CBA researchers on clouds and climate change.
As the ice in the clouds melts into droplets, they reflect more sunlight. But in the end there is no more ice left to melt.

Researchers at CBA are working to understand the linkages between terrestrial systems, fresh water and the marine environment. Recent field work in the Oslo fjord might help us understand eutrophication and browning of coastal marine environments.
In a new paper in Limnology and Oceanography, CBA researcher Lina Allesson and colleagues, have investigated the increasingly brown lakes in Norway and Sweden and their relation to the CO2 budget.
CBA PhD student Camille Crapart won the award for best poster at the Norwegian Environmental Chemistry Symposium NECS 2020.
CBA researchers are involved in teaching many courses at the University of Oslo, and now the fall semester has started with new students.
The CBA keeps up its frenetic pace of fieldwork. This time, in the region of Finnmark, in Northern Norway.
