LATICE - Presentations from the network

There are several research communities in Norway working on issues that are relevant to interactions between terrestrial vegetation ecosystems and the climate system, but research and teaching in this field is somewhat scattered and fragmented. A particular challenge is that groups working on large scale climate models to a limited extent collaborate with those studying and observing ecosystems on a small scale. It is a clear need to strengthen coordination of these research communities, for the benefit of both research and teaching in the field.

A national seminar on terrestrial vegetation ecological climatology has been organized to start such a process. University of Oslo (UiO) researchers in the Department of Geosciences and the Natural History Museum are now well integrated in the focus area “Land Atmosphere Interactions in Cold Environments” (LATICE, supported by the MN Faculty, UiO). The network seminar is supported by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).
