Center for International Climate and Environmental Research - (CICERO)

CICERO is a research institution affiliated with the University of Oslo. CICERO participates in a broad network of research communities and decision- makers, both nationally and internationally. With expertise in both the natural and the social sciences, it conducts interdisciplinary research on a wide range of environmental issues. CICERO’s five main areas of research are (1) Atmospheric and climatic effects of emissions and emissions reductions (2) Impacts on human health and environment of air pollution, (3) Impacts of climate change: vulnerability, adaptation and costs, (4) Climate agreements: design, implementation and costs, and (5) Climate policy: Instruments for national implementation. EU projects in which CICERO has participated include METRIC, APMoSPHERE, ENSEMBLES, DAMOCLES, ADAM and MOSUS. Recent projects that focus on the transport sector are the EU FP6 SSA ATTICA and IP QUANTIFY. CICERO also leads or participates in several projects with national funding.


Tasks attributed: Calculation of chemical and climate responses due to new activities in the Arctic.

Prof. Ivar S.A. Isaksen is professor in meteorology at the University of Oslo. He has 30 years of experience in research and teaching in atmospheric sciences. He has published more than 120 peer reviewed papers. Research emphasis is on modelling of ozone depletion, changes in greenhouse gas concentrations and the impact of man made emissions of pollutants on regional and global scales. He has coordinated several EU projects dealing with the impact of aircraft emissions, and is currently participating in the projects QUANTIFY, ECATS and ATTICA dealing with studies and assessments of aircraft emissions. He has been lead author of IPCC climate and WMO/UNEP ozone assessments. He is currently president of the International Ozone Commision (IO3C). He has obtained the National Oceanographic and Administration (NOAA) Award for outstanding scientific achievement and the Norwegian Ministry of Environment award for Environmental Research.
