Proff. Dorthe Dahl-Jensen and Jørgen Peder Steffensen (Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen), 27-28 May 2014

Dorthe Dahl-Jensen is professor of glaciology and leader of the Centre for Ice and Climate research group at the Niels Bohr Institute. She also heads the international project to drill ice cores through the 2-km thick Greenland ice sheet, which can tell us about the climate going back more than 128,000 years in time.

Jørgen Peder Steffensen is associate professor and curator at the Centre for Ice and Climate at Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He has been drilling ice cores in Greenland and Antarctica for several decades and considered a word expert in this field.

Prof. Michel Crucifix (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium), 23-24 April 2013

Prof. Crucifix is a research scientist with the National Fund of Scientific Research, and professor at the Université catholique de Louvain. He has been working on climate dynamics and palaeoclimates since 1998, and specialised in modelling the slow dyanimcs of the climate complex system. His main interest is to use data and models jointly to infer information on mechanisms of climate change.

During his visit to the EHI group, prof. Crucifix presented a seminar on “Time-series modelling for paleoclimate data” (seminar organized in collaboration with the Science and Management of Climate Change PhD program at Ca' Foscari University of Venice).

Prof. Hubertus Fischer (University of Bern, CH), 23 November 2012

Prof. Fischer’s research focuses on Ice core studies on aerosols, greenhouse gases and stable water isotopes, quaternary changes in climate and the atmosphere, past changes in global biogeochemical cycles, and the development of new high-precision mass spectrometric techniques.

During his visit to the EHI group, prof. Fischer presented a seminar on “An ice core view to changes in the global carbon cycle in the past” (seminar organized in collaboration with the Science and Management of Climate Change PhD program at Ca' Foscari University of Venice).

Prof. Raymond Bradley (University of Massachussets, US), 7-10 October 2012

Prof. Bradley’s research focuses on climate variability across a wide range of time scales.He is particularly interested in how present day climate differs from climates in the past, and what may have caused climates to change. He is the author or editor of eleven books on climatic change and paleoclimatology, including Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary , and of over 120 articles on these topics.

During his visit to the EHI group, prof. Bradley presented a seminar on “Paleoclimate applications of biomarkers in sediments” and took part in a round table on “Paleoclimate applications of biomarkers in sediments”. These events were organized in collaboration with the Science and Management of Climate Change PhD program at Ca' Foscari University of Venice.

Dr. Gavin Schmidt (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, US), 16-20 March 2012

Dr. Schmidt’s research focuses on understanding the variability of the climate, both its internal variability and the response to external forcing. In particular, how changes related to varying forcings relate to variations due to intrinsic (unforced) climate variability such as oscillations in the ocean's deep thermohaline circulation that affect ocean heat transports or atmospheric modes of variability like the North Atlantic Oscillation. Dr. Schmidt mainly uses large-scale general circulation models for the atmosphere and ocean to investigate these questions.

During his visit to the EHI group, Dr. Schmidt presented the following seminars:

“ The use of paleorecords in constraining future climate projections”;
“ Communicating climate change issues”.

Both seminars were organized in collaboration with the Science and Management of Climate Change PhD program at Ca' Foscari University of Venice.

Prof. Paolo Laj (Université Joseph Fourier, France), 11 November 2011

Prof. Laj is Director of the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Géophysique de l’Environnement of the Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble). His research focuses on atmospheric aerosols and the study of atmospheric composition.

During his visit to the EHI group, prof. Laj presented a seminar titled “Why do we need long-term observations of aerosol properties?”. The seminar was organized in collaboration with the Science and Management of Climate Change PhD program at Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
