Oslo joint seminar in atmospheric, ocean and climate science, Apr.29
Title: When is all the sea ice gone?
Speaker: Dirk Notz, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology
Speaker: Dirk Notz, MPI
First, I will explore the future of (primarily Arctic) sea ice in response to the changing climate of our planet. This analysis will be based on observations, conceptual understanding and large-scale models. Second, I will explore what we can learn from this analysis about the various tools we have available for studying the Earth System, and why potentially, we are sometimes setting the wrong priorities in developing them further.
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).
