Sparking off this year governmental election campaign in Norway, Arendalsuka, a political festival in southern Norway, was crowded with top-level politicians and organisations. During the week of the festival, ice2ice scientists organised a joint ice talk and ice concert in the main square of Arendal showcasing ice2ice research on ice and climate. In addition we guided local kindergarten children and high school pupils on a geological and climate tour on Merdø, a tiny island in the new Norwegian marine national park just outside of Arendal, introducing the kids to the geology and history of the deglaciation in the area, as well as putting the past into the context of future changes expected on Greenland.
Thsi spring Inger Marit Kolstadbråten from NRK Urix joined us on west coast Greenland and made a series of reports from Ilulissat and Disko Island. You can view them all here:
Spent the last 4 days touring central Norway with the icemusic crew lecturing about ice and climate followed by a fantastic ice music concert featuring the music of Terje Isungseth performed by Terje on ice instruments and Maria Skrånes on vocals, backed by Tor on lights and Rune on sound.
Great opportunity to discuss the impact of climate change on ice in the Arctic, on Greenland and in Antarctica, including our ongoing work in the ice2ice project.

Deadline for applications is 24th of June 2015:
This years ACDC will be held at Laugarvant, Iceland in the former boarding school Heradsskolinn. The topic we will focus on is “Climate and Volcanism” and as usual we aim for an interdisciplinary group of PhD students and lecturers within the field of climate dynamics (ocean, atmosphere, geology, glaciology).
You will find a list of lecturers and link to application form on our web site. Note deadline has been extended till the 21st of March!
Intervju i UiB’s avis På Høyden om vår nye MOOC på klimadynamikk som vi lager sammen med kommunikasjonsavdelingen på UiB.
During the next year there will be two fantastic ACDC lead session at AGU and EGU organized by the PhD students from the last two ACDC summer schools on Greenland (2014) and in Nyksund (2013):

Thanks to Roberta, Winnie and Bradley from ACDC 2014!
NRK Hordaland skriver litt om ice2ice prosjektet og forskningen vi planlegger på Grønland sammen med våre Danske partnere på sin hjemmeside i dag.
Det ligger også ett link til invervju på PI Her og Nå i forbindelse med Bjerknesdagen og ett foredrag jeg gav om effekten av temperaturendringer på Grønland:
Dette etter at vi hadde sett på den gripende dokumentaren ThuleTuvalu som var en del av BIFF programmet i år.
