Programme for Nordic Meteorologists´ Meeting


Important note: The Monday part of the meeting is now fully booked, but it is possible to register for the rest of the days

Monday 4th of June (first at Rockefeller, hereafter at DMI)

11-14 (flexible arrival time):  Registration at Rockefeller and visit to the Glaciologists Laboratory

We will see some of the old ice-core samples from Greenland. You do not have to arrive on time (11.00) for this event, as we will visit the Glaciologists Laboratory in smaller groups of about 10 people a time.

14-14.30: We will walk or take a bus towards DMI, where the programme will be as follows:
