In this talk we will discuss how the climate of Norway will change over the course of the Century due to the burning of fossil fuels. We will then assess the impact of these changes on two species of trolls* that presently reside in Norway, and explore some novel adaptation and mitigation strategies for preserving the trolls.

* We focus on these species of trolls because they are a charismatic megafauna, but the methodology used in this talk is relevant for all species, trolls or otherwise.


What is the Joint Oslo Seminar (JOS):

Atmospheric and climate sciences have a stronghold in Oslo among the four institutions University of Oslo, the Meteorological Institute, CICERO and NILU. This joint seminar invites renowned international experts to contribute to an informal series of lectures, meant to create interaction with the Oslo atmospheric and climate science community on recent highlights and analysis in the field. All seminars will be held on Thursdays (Noon -1pm) and lunch (sandwiches) will be served on a “first-come-first-served”-basis.
