• Downscaling an intense precipitation event in complex terrain: the importance of high grid resolution 

      Pontoppidan, Marie; Reuder, Joachim; Mayer, Stephanie; Kolstad, Erik Wilhelm (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Floods due to intense rainfall are a major hazard to both people and infrastructure in western Norway. Here steep orography enhances precipitation and the complex terrain channels the runoff into narrow valleys and small ...

      The Iceland Greenland Seas Project (IGP) is a coordinated atmosphere–ocean research program investigating climate processes in the source region of the densest waters of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation. ...
    • Large‐scale regional model biases in the extra‐tropical North Atlantic storm track and impacts on downstream precipitation 

      Pontoppidan, Marie Louise Nielsen; Kolstad, Erik Wilhelm; Sobolowski, Stefan Pieter; Sorteberg, Asgeir; Changhai, Liu; Rasmussen, Roy (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Global climate models have circulation biases that the community aims to reduce, for instance through high‐resolution dynamical downscaling. We used the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) to downscale both ...
    • Time Scales and Sources of European Temperature Variability 

      Årthun, Marius; Kolstad, Erik Wilhelm; Eldevik, Tor; Keenlyside, Noel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-04)
      Skillful predictions of continental climate would be of great practical benefit for society and stakeholders. It nevertheless remains fundamentally unresolved to what extent climate is predictable, for what features, at ...
    • Trials, errors and improvements in co-production of climate services 

      Kolstad, Erik Wilhelm; Sofienlund, Oda Nærland; Kvamsås, Hanna; Stiller-Reeve, Mathew Alexander; Neby, Simon; Paasche, Øyvind; Pontoppidan, Marie Louise Nielsen; Sobolowski, Stefan Pieter; Haarstad, Håvard; Oseland, Stina Ellevseth; Omdahl, Lene; Waage, Snorre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Climate change yields both challenges and opportunities. In both cases, costly adaptations and transformations are necessary and desirable, and these must be based on realistic and relevant climate information. However, ...
    • Uncertainties Associated with Quantifying Climate Change Impacts on Human Health: A Case Study for Diarrhea 

      Kolstad, Erik Wilhelm; Johansson, Kjell Arne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010-10-06)
      Background: Climate change is expected to have large impacts on health at low latitudes where droughts and malnutrition, diarrhea, and malaria are projected to increase. Objectives: The main objective of this study was to ...
