MetadataShow full item record
Bergen, in Western Norway, is the birthplace of modern weather forecasting and of physical oceanography. It has been a center for daring polar expeditions, for NATO research and for climate modeling. In 2017, the internationally oriented Geophysical Institute celebrated its 100th anniversary. This book tells the scientific history of geophysics as seen from Bergen. “The little northern town of Bergen, sea-port, fishing-haven, market town, has done more for science in the last two or three generations than many – not to say most – university towns.” (Nature, July 21, 1928).
