When studying climate change, it is often a problem that reliable, comparable data go back just a few decades. Long time series are in high demand, especially when it comes to the Earth’s cryosphere, consisting of glaciers, ice and frozen ground.
The Norwegian-based biology research centre CEES has made a lot of discoveries and pushed the frontiers in international science. The driving force behind CEES from start has been Professor Nils Chr. Stenseth, who is now stepping down as centre chair.
Mammals and birds have bigger brains than fish, amphibians and reptiles, and as a result are allegedly more intelligent. But by which mechanisms did this occur? Now an international team of researchers, led by UiO, might have the answer.

Natural sciences and history, the Vikings seen in light of climate changes
Sep. 7, 2018 12:49 PM
The Department of Geosciences has several externally financed projects, in 2017 external research support contributed 50% of the department's economy. On Monday the 27th of August there was a start-up meeting for one of the newest projects - Volcanic Eruptions and their Impacts on Climate, Environment, and Viking Society in 500-1250 CE (VIKINGS). The project is supported by FRIPRO/Toppforsk/FRINATEK.
