  • Arctic Polar Research - A Global Responsibility

    Due to climate change and geopolitical trends, the Polar Regions (particularly the Arctic) are increasingly becoming the focus of scientific, political, and economic interests. Much of the global climate is driven by forces that originate in the Arctic. The Arctic sea ice is receding faster than climate models have predicted, and the movement of freshwater into and around the Arctic plays an ...

  • Archaeological survey 2

    The site of the Meadows’ Wesleyan Cemetery in the Adelaide is thought to contain more than 130 unmarked graves. This site initially had a chapel constructed on it in 1840 and the first burial in 1855.  The initial chapel was replaced by a more substantial stone building in 1856.  Burials continued in this cemetery sporadically until the 1940’s although the site became less ...

  • NILU participates in Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE)

    Research Unit on Biosphere – Aerosol – Cloud – Climate Interactions. The main objective of the new Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) is to study the importance of aerosol particles on climate change and on human health.  Particularly, the research will focus on a) the effect of biogenic aerosols on global aerosol load, b) aerosol-cloud-climate interaction and c) the relationships between the ...

  • Impact of sound attenuation by suspended sediment on ADCP backscatter calibrations

    Abstract. Although designed for velocity measurements, acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) are widely being used to monitor suspended particulate matter in rivers and in marine environments. To quantify mass concentrations of suspended matter, ADCP backscatter is generally calibrated with in situ measurements. ADCP backscatter calibrations are often highly site-specific and season ...

  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...
