NorESM User Workshop

The workshop will consist of lectures on simulating the NorESM2 model and practical sessions on running NorESM2 with various components (e.g., CAM, MICOM, CLM, CICE) and post-processing data. The workshop is targeted to Ph.D student, postdocs and scientists who are interested in executing model simulations and technical aspects. We can accept a maximum of 20 students based on their knowledge of using HPC machines.

(Possibly, we also will have streaming capacity. If interested indicate this in the application.)

Workshop registration is free of charge and lunch and social dinner on Tuesday 3 September is included. Participants must cover travel and accommodation.

Contact: Yanchun He (, Jørund Strømsøe (, Alok Kumar Gupta (

“Still disagreeing about climate change … but what have we learned in 10 years?”

6th September - Mike Hulme gives a guest lecture at UiB

Dear all,

I kindly ask you to help spreading info about this event to colleagues and students:

It is now 10 years since Mike Hulme published the seminal book “Why we disagree about climate change” and we have asked him to reflect on the climate issue “ten years after”.

He has accepted and will come to Bergen 6th September and give the talk “Still disagreeing about climate change … but what have we learned in 10 years?” More on Mike Hulme below.

Be sure to put this in your calendar. We will come back with venue and time (probably at 10am).


Best wishes,

Kjersti Fløttum
