MISU is hosting the workshop “Deep Neural Networks for Beginners!

The workshop will be held from 07-09.10.2019 at Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University, with an invited guest-lecturer, Prof. Ribana Roscher, Institute of Computer Science, University of Osnabrueck, Germany, who is an expert at applications of neural networks in the domain of Natural and Earth Sciences.

FORCeS - new project on air pollution and its effect on climate

Annica Ekman, Department of Meteorology, and Ilona Riipinen, Department of Environmental Sciences and Analytical Chemistry, are coordinating a new Horizon 2020 project on how air pollution affects climate

Study meteorology, oceanography and climate

Are you interested in working with the most important environmental issues of our time, applying mathematics, physics, and chemistry to understand the weather, oceans and the climate of the Earth?

Communicating uncertainty

Mitigation of the current climate changes requires profound and immediate action. This is beyond doubt. But there are still many uncertainties on how rapidly the climate will change. This makes it hard to find the best ways for decision makers to act here and now. In a new interdisciplinary research project funded by Formas Frida Bender at the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University together with the philosopher Per Wikman from KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology) will study these uncertainties and how they influence decision making.

New research on how clouds affect the climate

How clouds affect the climate is one of the greatest uncertainties in future climate projections. To study the clouds in a novel way Frida Bender at the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University have received a grant from the Swedish Research Council.

Oceanographic research in cooperation with seals

Etienne Pauthenet is defending his Doctoral thesis on the distribution of temperature and salinity in the Southern Ocean at the Department of Metoerology at Stockholm University. To collect data for his research he has used elephant seals living in the Antarctic region.
