Norway has a long history of #polar #research. Nansen's Fram expedition of 1893–96 was an attempt by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen to reach the geographical #NorthPole by harnessing the natural east–west current of the #Arctic #Ocean. In the face of much discouragement from other polar explorers, #Nansen took his ship #Fram to the New Siberian Islands in the eastern Arctic Ocean, froze her intothe pack ice, and waited for the drift to carry her towards the pole. The expedition lasted for years and they encountered many dangers. Nansen laid much of the basis for what we know about the Arctic Oceans and sea ice dynamics today and his measurements are still being used. He also developed and designed many of the first oceanographic measurings instruments as you can see in the pictures. Although we now have more modern tools and ships we still use many of the same scientific methods that Nansen & Co used. Fun fact: Nansen hypothesized that the Arctic Ocean was deep but he did not imagine it could be thousands of meters. He found this out when he simply did not have enough rope on board to measure the ocean depth. #iglotakeover#climatescience #forskningkommunikasjon#arktis #bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm#phdlife #forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography#klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork #oceanmorven #oceanography

Measurements can tell us a lot about the #ocean, however, we can measure everywhere at a given time. Computer simulations can fill the holes in time and space and help us to increase our understanding, much like weather forecast models do. These #models are systems of mathematical equations based on the basic laws of physics, fluid motion, and chemistry. To “run” a model, scientists divide the planet into a 3-dimensional grid, apply the basic equations, and evaluate the results. Basically, if you use observations of how the ocean is today you can use a model to calculate the state of the ocean in the future or past. They are used for a variety of purposes from study of the dynamics of the climate system to projections of future #climate. Global climate models often require a lot of computing power and run on #supercomputers, which are serval 100.000 times stronger than a normal laptop. In my work I use models to study how ocean has impacted #Arctic sea ice in the past. #iglotakeover #climatescience#forskningkommunikasjon #arktis#bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm #phdlife#forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography#klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork #oceanmorven #oceanography

A very common instrument used in #oceanography is a CTD. CTD stands for Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth. It measures the temperature and salinity of the #ocean and from this we can calculate the density of seawater. With the CTD we also make measurements of the ocean chemistry and can take water samples that can tell us something about the small scale biology in the water. The CTD is lowered from the ship to the ocean bottom and hence measures many different layers and currents at different depths. The ocean is a highly dynamic three-dimensional system that changes a lot. Tides and winds affect the currents and hence also the life in the ocean. Life that we all depend on. For example, phytoplankton are highly dependent on the currents, and as agents of primary production, they are responsible for 70 percent of Earth's oxygen production. Our observations help us understand the connections between the physical and biological systems and it also helps us to understand what impact we as humans might have on life in the ocean. #globalwarming #oceanpolution. #iglotakeover#climatescience #forskningkommunikasjon#arktis #bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm#phdlife #forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography#klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork #oceanmorven #oceanography

In order to understand the oceans we need to observe and take measurements. This involves a lot of #fieldwork with ships where we deploy buoys, underwater moorings and take measurements from the surface to the bottom at several thousands of meters. We also use #underwater robots called gliders that stay in the water several months at a time. Working at sea can mean that you are away from civilization several weeks at a time. Sometimes in nice and warm places but also in cold places and badweather. We use different kind of #scientificvessels filled with lots of equipment and crazy #scientist. Some are equipped to withstand the harsh #climate in the #Arctic and can break through the #seaice. All the data we collect is gathered and scientists around the world collaborate on databases of these measurements that will help us to understand how the #ocean systems work and change over time. #polar #iglotakeover #climatescience#forskningkommunikasjon #arktis#bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm #phdlife#forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography#klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork #oceanmorven

Unlike Antarctica, which is a big landmass covered by a thick ice sheet (several km thick), the #Arctic mainly consist of a deep #ocean (up to 4000m!) which is covered by a thin layer (just a few meters) of floating sea ice. The Arctic Ocean is the smallest of the world’s oceans surrounded by Eurasia and North America. The #seaice covers a large area (up to 2x the size of the US) and helps cool our planet through the reflection of sun light. The Arctic ice pack undergoes a regular seasonal cycle in which ice melts in spring and summer, reaches a minimum around mid-September, then increases during fall and winter. Due to #globalwarming the sea ice cover has declined dramatically over the last few decades (20X the area of the Netherlands per decade).Some places this decrease is due to a warmer atmosphere but in the Atlantic sector it is connected to warm ocean waters. In my research I investigate how warm Atlantic water masses from the extension of the gulf stream hinder sea ice growth north of #Svalbard and in the #BarentsSea, and how these temperatures of these currents have varied naturally in the past. I look at measurements from the last 100 years and combine this with advanced computer simulations. #iglotakeover #climatescience#forskningkommunikasjon #arktis#bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm #phdlife#forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography#klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork #oceanmorven

Hi! I’m Morven (@oceanmorven) and this weeks takeover for #portaleniglo. Over this week I’ll give you an insight in my life as an #oceanographer, #climateresearcher and #PhD at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway. As a physical oceanographer I work to understand the physics of the ocean, such as ocean currents, waves and sea ice. I mainly work with the #polar regions and study the role of the #ocean in a changing global and regional #climate system. Did you know that 70% of the planet is covered by oceans and that we know less about the deep oceans than about the surface of the moon? As #moderndayexplorers we try to reveal and understand the secrets of nature. Over the course of this week I’m going to share more about my research with you and we will visit exciting places such as #greenland, #svalbard & the #northpole. We will see how we measure the oceans from ships like the one on the picture, and how we use computer models in science. #iglotakeover #climatescience #forskningkommunikasjon #arktis #bjerknessenteret #ice2ice #scicomm #phdlife #forskkomm #geofysiskinstitutt #geofysiskfagutvalg #oceanography #klimaforskning #oceanographeratwork

Hei!

Another method to decipher the past climate around Hardangerfjord is sediment coring! In this case it was done by a Russian peat corer and the retrieved sediments displayed a beautiful sequence of different layers from the transition from the last ice-age to our present warm period: the Holocene.
In this example we could see four distinct sediment layers (from the bottom up, right -> left): brown gyttja, grey clay, black volcanic ash, grey clay and brown gyttja.
.
The gyttja in the bottom and top are from the Allerød respectively the Holocene warm periods. The grey clay layers are from the Younger Dryas cold period when the ice-sheet in Hardangerfjord re-advanced during the very end of the ice-age and sent in glacial meltwater into this location. Between the clay layers lies a black layer of volcanic ash. This is a well-known ash layer from a huge Icelandic eruption some 12 200 years ago called the Vedde Ash.
.
The sediments from this location can thus tell us a story of how the climate changed from warm to cold and back again.

Hallais, Carl here! 
This week, I'll be taking over #portaleniglo.
.
I'm a #phdstudent working at #uibgeo and #bjerknessenteret in #Bergen. My research focus on glacier and climate variations during the last ice age. 
In this post you can see me and collegues sampling boulders above #Hardangerfjord in western #Norway.
These large boulders where left there as the ice-sheet retreated during the end of the last ice-age. 
By analysing the isotopes in the boulers we can then find out for how long they have been exposed to cosmic radiation, i.e. when the ice-sheet left them there.
.
This is a method known as exposure dating or 10Be-dating.
Using this method we can get a better understanding of the timing and pattern of ice-sheet retreat at the time.
This will in turn result in a better understanding of landscape developement in the area and also how ice-sheets respond to a changing climate.
.
More on how we reconstruct past glacier variations and climate will follow in my next posts! ;)

Hey #portaleniglo followers! Autumn has arrived with the September #equinox in the northern hemisphere. With autumn, I write your my last post - and show you a picture of the first snow of the year here in #finse...! Here at the #acdcsummerschool, we discussed the effect of #milankovichcycles on variations in insolation from the sun, something that played a major role in our climate on glacial-interglacial timescales (10s of thousands of years). The relative importance of the Milankovitch cycles for the northern and southern hemispheres is still an ongoing debate between scientist, so there is plenty of research to be done on that. I am actually studying the role of the southern ocean in global climate during the last glacial maximum (#lgm, 21000 years ago) from a biogeochemical perspective, hopefully adding another piece to the puzzle of understanding our climate. With that I say goodbye, enjoy portaleniglo and its peek view in the life of polar researchers. Byebye!

Hello again! After more beautiful mornings here at #finse, I'll tell you a bit more about my PhD. I study the role of the #southernocean (the ocean around #antarctica) in the global carbon cycle. The carbon cycle describes how the element carbon is exchanged between ocean, land and atmosphere. An important reason to study the carbon cycle is CO2, which contains carbon (which you can see from the C in the name 😁). As most of you know, atmospheric #co2 is an important greenhouse gas for our #climate. But back to the southern ocean: The southern ocean is a region where the deep ocean is relatively well connected to the atmosphere (because of a process called upwelling). There is an enormous amount of CO2 in the deep ocean, and this connection therefore functions as a type of 'valve', regulating atmospheric CO2 and thereby our climate. Scientist like me are thus very motivated to find out how this 'valve' exactly works, and how it might have varied through time. But more about that in my next post!

Hei! I'm Anne, taking over #portaleniglo this week. I'm a #phdstudent at the geophysical institute in #Bergen, at the #bjerknessenteret. There I work with the Norwegian earth system model (NorESM), a huge computer model that you only can use on the biggest computers in the world... Super nerdy, but also super fun :). I am lucky, because this week is quite special and exciting. I'm in #Finse, at the #acdcsummerschool together with 22 other young #earthscientists from #aroundtheworld. This morning I woke up with the #view on the picture, not bad at all for a workday. I feel very fortunate to be here together with so many interesting people! I'll tell you more about my PhD and what we are doing here in Finse in my next post. Cheers, Anne Morée

#capricecore reveals that past abrupt global climate changes are imprinted in the layers of sediment accumulated in the ocean over time. Within my (@cayukshuk) PhD I work together with climate modelers, oceanographers, and many other #climateresearchers within the #ice2ice project to study past abrupt changes in the ocean to try and understand what might happen in the future when Arctic sea ice disappears. Check out this short film https://vimeo.com/156830900 to learn more about Dansgaard Oeschger events and past abrupt climate change.
