Professor of Climate Science and Meteorology, Edward Hanna– School of Geography, was invited to the Nansen Center in Bergen, Norway during 28th – 31st August 2018.
During his visit, Prof Hanna gave collaborative talks with research scientists and was also invited to deliver two guest lectures, titled ‘Arctic Amplification of Mid-Latitude Weather’ and ‘Greenland Ice Sheet Mass Balance and Climate’.
The Nansen Center is an independent, non-profit research foundation conducting basic and applied environmental and climate research.
The talks were well received; the visit was highly productive and resulted in new links being made with several researchers as well as consolidating existing links on Arctic glaciology / Greenland Ice Sheet and climate change matters.
As part of his ongoing research, Prof Hanna also presented the results from his Greenland Ice Sheet / climate research at the International Glaciological Society’s annual British Branch Meeting in Exeter (4th September 2018).
