Nordheimsund workshop




The researchers participating in the ice2ice project meet every half year to facilitate cooperation between researchers from the four partner institutions; University of Bergen, University of Copenhagen, UniResearch and the Danish Meteorological Institute.

This time the meeting is in Nordheimsund, Norway and will last a full four days. The ice2ice community will update each other on the progress in the work packages of the ice2ice project and discuss future work. Further for the workshop guest researchers are invited to give state of the art talks to ensure the ice2ice community is always updated with the most recent science relating to the ice2ice project.
