Global warming potential of hydrogen estimated
The global warming effect of leaked hydrogen is almost 12 times stronger than co₂, shows a new study by CICERO, a climate research centre, published in Nature Communications Earth & Environment.
Hydrogen is often considered a green energy carrier that has the potential to replace oil, but little is known about its environmental and climate impacts. Over the next three years, CICERO will therefore study what these impacts are.
EXtremeClimTwin: Building capacity on climate extremes through cooperation
Increasing heat extremes, reduced summer precipitation and higher rainfall intensities are some of the climate change impacts facing the Western Balkans. To strengthen local researchers’ ability to understand the current and coming changes in climate extremes, CICERO researchers are involved in an EU funded capacity building project with the University of Novi Sad in Serbia.

AVIATE: How can aviation contribute to a low-carbon society?
The AVIATE (Aviation in a low-carbon society) project will provide better understanding of the climate impact of aviation, both for Norway and globally, and explore options for reducing that impact.

The research group covers a broad range of topics within the atmospheric sciences. We are primarily a modelling group, studying radiative forcing of the climate system, and the role of gases, aerosols and clouds.
The Climate Impacts group is an interdisciplinary group with high-level expertise on climate, air-pollution and economic modeling. We conduct comprehensive quantitative impact and risk analyses, including vulnerability, exposure and hazard components.
