Ice cores- revealing secrets of past climate

For the first time an international group of scientists will drill a deep ice core into a fast flowing ice stream on Greenland. The international project (eastgrip.org), where the University of Bergen and the Bjerknes Centre is one of the main partners, is lead by the Centre of Ice and Climate at the University of Copenhagen. During the summer of 2016 a team of researchers and students built the base on the ice stream in northeast Greenland, started a comprehensive scientific surface field campaign, and initiated the ice core drilling. The aim of the project is to better understand the dynamics and properties of the fast flowing ice stream. By the time they reach bedrock in the year 2020, the team will have extracted nearly 2700m of Greenland ice giving a 100,000 year old climate archive.

Paleoclimatology 101: Searching in the deep sea libraries

Join Ida Olsen, master student in Earth Science, on a real research cruise
to the Nordic Seas. Researchers from UiB, Uni Research and the Bjerknes
Centre were heading out at sea to gather glimpses from the climate
archives hidden in the ocean floors. In the ice2ice project, they are
trying to find out what happens if the Arctic sea ice disappears.

Ice2Ice

European Research Counsil has awarded a grant allowing 40 scientists and PhDs from Bergen and Copenhagen to work together the next 5 years to study abrupt arctic climate change. The research project is named “Arctic Sea Ice and Greenland Ice Sheet Sensitivity (Ice2Ice)”
