Climate change debate: 2014 was the warmest year Sweden has experienced

The last 10-20 years we have experienced increased temperatures in Sweden and globally due to climate change and global warming. 2014 was the warmest year we have had in Sweden since regular forecasts started in the mid 19th century. The average temperature in Sweden 2014 was 6.9 degrees, compared to the normal average annual temperature which is 4.7 degrees. Michael Tjernström, Head of Department, comments this on TV4 Nyheterna.

Caroline Leck

The Swedish agricultural policy leads to increased emissions

Caroline Leck debates the state support for the agricultural sector on "DN-debatt". It contributes to increased emissions instead of sustainability.

New research grants to Rodrigo Caballero and Gunilla Svensson

Swedish Research Council supports Rodrigo Caballero with 3.4 million for the project “The role of atmospheric moist intrusions in Arctic climate”, and Gunilla Svensson with 3.2 million SEK for the project “The role of surface friction for midlatitude storm climate”, within their general call for Natural and Engineering Sciences 2014. Congratulations!

Jonas Nycander

Jonas Nycander presents a new policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on "DN-debatt"

Seventeen years after the Kyoto Protocol was signed the emissions of greenhouse gases are greater than ever before. A new policy is needed: An international agreement about a taxation on fossil fuels. This would raise the cost of the emissions and at the same time raise fiscal revenues.

MATS satellit

The Swedish National Space Board (Rymdstyrelsen) has decided to fund the MATS satellite

This is fantastic news for us at MISU and for our partners at Chalmers, at KTH and in Swedish space industry. 15 years after the launch of Odin, MISU now has the scientific responsibility for the next Swedish research satellite. The acronym MATS stands for Mesospheric Airglow/Aerosol Tomography and Spectroscopy. If all work goes as planned, MATS will be launched towards the end of 2017.
