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.
