More hurricane surges in the future

18. marts 2013

How many extreme storm surges like that from Hurricane Katrina, which hit the U.S. coast in 2005, will there be as a result of global warming? New research from the Niels Bohr Institute show that there will be a tenfold increase

Greenland ice cores reveal warm climate of the past

22. januar 2013

New research from the NEEM ice core drilling project in Greenland shows that the warm Eemian period - 130,000 and 115,000 years ago was warmer than previously thought.

Massive volcanic eruption puts past climate and people in perspective

05. november 2012

The largest volcanic eruption on Earth in the past millions of years took place in Indonesia 74,000 years ago and researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute can now link the colossal eruption with the global climate

Turbulent flows in 2D can be calculated in new model

23. oktober 2012

Turbulent flows have challenged researchers for centuries. It is impossible to predict chaotic weather more than a week in advance. Now, however, researchers from NBI have succeeded in developing a

Methane emissions can be traced back to Roman times

03. oktober 2012

Emissions of the greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere can be traced back thousands of years in the Greenland ice sheet. The results go all the way back to Roman times and up to the present

Mars's dramatic climate variations are driven by the Sun

06. september 2012

Researchers from NBI have related the layers in the ice cap on Mars’s north pole to variations in solar insolation on Mars, thus established the first dated climate history for Mars
