Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth

The section for the Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth at the Niels Bohr Institute studies the elements of the Earth and climate system – the atmosphere, oceans, ice sheets and glaciers, sea ice, and the solid Earth itself – and the interactions between them.

Visit us
High school classes and other groups can request a visit at the section. The most common topic is climate change with focus on ice-core science, but other topics are possible.

Please fill in the form in Danish or write an e-mail to the section secretary at pice@nbi.ku.dk

Web pages, movies, popular science papers about our research

Under Research you will find A lot of the section’s ice-core-based climate research described for non-specialists. You can also find information about our available high-school projects “studieretningsprojekter”. Finally, we provide a list of popular science texts in Danish.

Frozen Annals

Willi Dansgaard founded the world’s first research group focused on climate research based on ice-core analysis (read a short version of the background story here).

After his retirement in 1992, Willi Dansgaard wrote an autobiograhic book in Danish, Grønland i Istid og Nutid (Rhodos, 2000, ISBN 8772457996). Later, he compiled an English version, Frozen Annals, which focuses more on the scientific part of the story. The book can be downloaded here as a pdf file.

CIC ice flow group

The ice flow modelling group at Centre for Ice and Climate studies ice sheets and glaciers in the climate system. Our research interests cover glaciological themes related to ice flow modelling and observations, surface mass balance and evolution of ice sheets. 

Weekly group meetings.

Virtual meetings every Thursdays at 9.00-10 ...
