Dr. Jan Even Øie Nilsen, male, born 1969, is a physical
oceanographer whose research concerns climatic processes in the Atlantic,
Nordic, and Arctic Seas, including sea level rise. He has been working as
a research scientist at the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center
(NERSC), Bergen, Norway, since May 2002. Nilsen is also part of the
Bjerknes Centre of Climate Research (BCCR) in Bergen, one of the Norwegian
Research Council's "Centres of Excellence" (CoE).
Nilsen is co-PI for the European Climate Research Alliance (ECRA)
collaborative programme on sea level and climate change, working to
strengthen the communication and cooperation between science, coastal
engineering, social science and governance. He has been author of several
reports concerning sea level change (SLC) and relevance for society, and
he is a contact point for NERSC and on national level towards governmental
agencies and municipalities in Norway, regarding SLC.
Nilsen is the project leader of BCCR's project on "NoRthern European
and Arctic Sea lEvel" (iNcREASE). Earlier Nilsen was the project leader of
the project "Changes in the past, present, and future sea level on the
coast of Norway" funded by the City of Bergen (2009-2012), and the project
leader for "Sea level change and ice sheet dynamics" (SEALEV) at the
Centre for climate dynamics (SKD) at the Bjerknes Centre. Nilsen
participated in providing the official projections of 21st century sea
level changes for Norway in 2015.
Nilsen received his Dr.Scient. degree in physical oceanography, on the
hydrography and dynamics of the Atlantic Water flow through the Norwegian
Sea, from the Geophysical Institute (GFI), University of Bergen (UiB),
Norway, in 2003.
