    Welcome back Gabriele!

    Gabriele is funded by a MISU fellowship, and his research focusses on high-impact extreme weather events in the mid-latitudes. The aim of his work is to improve the understanding of the large-scale drivers of these events, and hence their predictability.

    Antarktis smältande is saktar ner cirkulationen i världshaven

    Sötvatten från Antarktis smältande isar saktar ner de processer som är ansvariga för bildandet av djuphavens strömmar vilka i sin tur reglerar den globala temperaturen. Det visar ny forskning som publicerats i tidskriften Nature Communications.

    Kvällskurs Vädret Makter 2016

    Kursen handlar om de fysikaliska processer som beskriver skeenden i atmosfären. Bland annat så behandlas jordens strålningsbalans, moln och nederbördsbildning, lagarna för atmosfärens horisontella och vertikala rörelser, El Nino samt vädersystemens struktur. Det ingår även diskussioner av meteorologiska observationer och olika typer av väderkartor.

    Arctic Ocean 2016

    The Swedish icebreaker Oden is going on a research mission to the Arctic again and during the week 23-26 some MISU people, and some others, spent climbing around on Oden in Helsingborg harbor to set up instruments and take part in a one day science workshop and - for those that actually goes on the expedition - to brush up on board safety.

    • Jón Egill Kristjánsson 2016-08-19 We are sorry to announce that Professor Jón Egill Kristjánsson, University of Oslo, has passed away in an accident in the Norwegian mountains. Jón Egill was a highly active, competent and internationally respected climate scientist and a very good friend of us at MISU.
    • Thin tropical clouds cool the climate 2016-08-17 Thin clouds at about 5 km altitude are more ubiquitous in the tropics than previously thought and they have a substantial cooling effect on climate. This is shown in a recent study by researchers from Stockholm University and the University of Miami published in Nature Communications. The cooling effect of mid-level clouds is currently missing in global climate models.
