      We apply a physical climate storyline approach to an autumn flood event in the West Coast of Norway caused by an atmospheric river to demonstrate the value and challenges of higher spatial and temporal resolution in ...
    • Science as a "fixed point" Quantification and boundary objects in international climate politics 

      Lahn, Bård; Sundqvist, Göran (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Our understanding of climate change is dominated by quantified scientific knowledge, with science and politics usually seen as operating separately and autonomously from one another. By investigating a particular fact box ...

      Aamodt, Solveig; Stensdal, Iselin Phoebe (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      What drives the development of climate policy? Brazil, China, and India have all changed their climate policies since 2000, and single-case analyses of climate policymaking have found that all three countries have had ...
    • Sensitivity of black carbon concentrations and climate impact to aging and scavenging in OsloCTM2-M7 

      Lund, Marianne Tronstad; Berntsen, Terje Koren; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Accurate representation of black carbon (BC) concentrations in climate models is a key prerequisite for understanding its net climate impact. BC aging and scavenging are treated very differently in current models. Here, ...
    • Sharing a quota on cumulative carbon emissions 

      Raupach, Michael R.; Davis, Steven J.; Peters, Glen Philip; Andrew, Robbie; Canadell, Josep G.; Friedlingstein, Pierre; Jotzo, Frank; Le Quéré, Corinne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      Any limit on future global warming is associated with a quota on cumulative global CO2 emissions. We translate this global carbon quota to regional and national scales, on a spectrum of sharing principles that extends from ...
    • Sharing among neighbours in a Norwegian suburb 

      Westskog, Hege; Aase, Tor Halfdan; Standal, Karina; Tellefsen, Sølvi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Sharing goods and services has been promoted as fostering more sustainable consumption. In this paper, we explore sharing in a middle-class neighbourhood in a Norwegian city. We ask what influences and frames neighbours’ ...
    • Side-payments: an effective instrument for building climate clubs? 

      Sælen, Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Climate clubs have been suggested as a gateway to substantial reductions in global emissions. The club approach begins with a small number of enthusiastic countries. This paper asks under what conditions such clubs are ...
    • Silos as barriers to public sector climate adaptation and preparedness: insights from road closures in Norway 

      Leiren, Merethe Dotterud; Jacobsen, Jens Kristian Steen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Organisational perspectives propose that structural arrangements affect policy outcomes. Drawing on these perspectives, it is worthwhile to find out whether and how disagreements among public authorities create barriers ...
    • Similar patterns of tropical precipitation and circulation changes under solar and greenhouse gas forcing 

      Misios, Stergios; Kasoar, Matthew; Kasoar, Elliott; Gray, Lesley; Haigh, Joanna; Stathopoulos, Stavros; Kourtidis, Konstantinos; Myhre, Gunnar; Olivié, Dirk; Shindell, Drew; Tang, Tao (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Theory and model evidence indicate a higher global hydrological sensitivity for the same amount of surface warming to solar as to greenhouse gas (GHG) forcing, but regional patterns are highly uncertain due to their ...
    • Smart hedging against carbon leakage 

      Böhringer, Christoph; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Policy makers in the EU and elsewhere are concerned that unilateral pricing of the carbon externality induces carbon leakage through relocation of emission-intensive and trade-exposed production to other regions. A common ...
    • Smoothing a reference pathway based on discrete exogenous projections 

      Wei, Taoyuan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      In integrated assessment studies and scenario analysis, typically we need to calibrate a model to follow an exogenous pathway, e.g., the shared socioeconomic pathways. In these exogenous pathways, the data of key variables ...
    • The Spectral Nature of Stratospheric Temperature Adjustment and its Application to Halocarbon Radiative Forcing 

      Shine, Keith Peter; Myhre, Gunnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Stratospheric temperature adjustment (STA) is often a significant component of greenhouse gas radiative forcing (RF), for both the most widely used definition of RF and effective radiative forcing. It is well established ...
    • Stable climate metrics for emissions of short and long-lived species—combining steps and pulses 

      Collins, William J.; Frame, David J.; Fuglestvedt, Jan S.; Shine, Keith Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Multi-gas climate agreements rely on a methodology (widely referred to as 'metrics') to place emissions of different gases on a CO2-equivalent scale. There has been an ongoing debate on the extent to which existing metrics ...
    • Standard climate models radiation codes underestimate black carbon radiative forcing 

      Myhre, Gunnar; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Radiative forcing (RF) of black carbon (BC) in the atmosphere is estimated using radiative transfer codes of various complexities. Here we show that the two-stream radiative transfer codes used most in climate models give ...
