The Bjerknes Centre is a collaboration on climate research, between the University of Bergen, NORCE, the Institute of Marine Research, Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre.

See Earth the way climate modelers view it

All new Explore the Earth is a virtual exhibition of the earth system – for those who want to learn more about climate modeling.

Planet Earth is more than a giant rock in space. 

As a part of the EVA project, where scientists developed the Norwegian Earth System Model, NorESM, a teaching tool was developed to show how climate modelers view the system around them.

The result is Explore the Earth, a virtual exhibition which could be a supplement for bachelor students, teachers, or others with an interest in the climate systems, and want to learn how the earth, ocean and athmosphere behave. In addition, there are texts from climate modelers, and a quiz.

The project is found at

EVA – Earth system modelling of climate Variations in the Anthropocene is a project where University of Bergen, NORCE, Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, University of Oslo, Norwegian Meteorological Institute, NILU and CICERO, has contributed, with support from the Norwegian Research Council.

That EVA now comes to an end, does not mean that the development of the Norwegian Earth system model will stop. Alot of the work continues into the successor: the infrastructure project INES
