Visit to the Norwegian Meteorological Institute

October 11, 2022 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm


We are all interested in the weather! It is very often a topic of conversation, something we all talk about. The Special Events Committee invites you to join us on a visit to the Meteorological Institute at the University of Oslo in order to learn a bit more about ‘weather’.

Meteorologists from the institute will be our guides. We will see the forecast room, have a look at the observation instruments in the park outside, and visit the ‘Tall Hall’, also known as the ‘Data Hall’. This very special building opened in 2011, and was the first building in Norway made of low-carbon concrete. It was designed by Pir II Architects, with a focus on climate efficiency.

After the tour, those who wish may join us in Frederikke, the main student canteen. The lunch will be ordered in advance and will consist of two half-rolls, one with brie and bacon, and the other with egg and tomato, and coffee/tea. Cakes may be bought separately.
