Integrated Arctic observation system
01/12/2016 - 30/11/2021

The overall objective of INTAROS is to develop an integrated Arctic Observation System (iAOS) by extending, improving and unifying existing systems in the different regions of the Arctic. INTAROS will have a strong multidisciplinary focus, with tools for integration of data fr...

The life cycle of clouds in the high Arctic summer with linkages to the microbiological life in ocean and ice
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Simulating the future of Arctic climate is strongly limited by inadequate descriptions of regional feedback mechanisms in models involving the ocean, sea ice, snow cover, clouds and radiation, and importantly marine biology.

These feedbacks must be described in parameter...

The physics of Arctic warm-air intrusions and their effects on climate
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Arctic climate change has been a scientific focus because of its pace, ~2-3 times faster than global climate change. There is, however, no consensus concerning reasons or mechanisms for this Arctic amplification. Two main research tracks can be distinguished: changes ...

Large-Scale Organisation of Extreme Weather over Europe and North America
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Understanding the drivers of extreme weather events and improving their predictability is of crucial societal and economic value. The present project will develop an innovative approach to the problem by analysing and quantifying the role of specific large-scale atmospheric ci...

Advanced Prediction in Polar regions and beyond: Modelling, observing system design and LInkages associated with ArctiC ClimATE change
01/11/2016 - 31/10/2020

Arctic climate change increases the need of a growing number of stakeholders for trustworthy weather and climate predictions, both within the Arctic and beyond. APPLICATE will address this challenge and develop enhanced predictive capacity by bringing together scientists from ...

Marine aerosol influence on clouds in the high Arctic
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The goal of this project is to investigate if local emissions of aerosol particles from the ocean surface govern the background state of clouds in the summertime high Arctic. This knowledge is fundamental for understanding the response of Arctic clouds to different perturbatio...

The coupled ocean-atmosphere climate system in temperature-salinity-humidity space
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The main purpose of this project is to study to what extent the global atmospheric hydrothermal cycle is connected to the ocean thermohaline circulation in temperature-humidity-salinity space. We will explore to which degree the water-mass conversion in temperature-salinity sp...

PRocess-based climate sIMulation: AdVances in high resolution modelling and European climate Risk Assessment
01/11/2015 - 31/10/2019

The goal of PRIMAVERA is to deliver novel, advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models (GCMs), capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity, out to 2050. This capability will deliver innovative climate science and a ne...

The role of atmospheric moist intrusions in Arctic climate
01/01/2015 - 31/12/2018
Under de senaste decennierna har temperaturen i Arktis stigit mycket snabbare än i resten av världen. Samtidigt har havsisens utbredning minskat markant. Den exakta orsaken till den förstärkta uppvärmningen av Arktis är fortfarande okänd. Den va...

The role of surface friction for midlatitude storm climate
01/01/2015 - 31/12/2018
Det väder vi har i Skandinavien och resten av Europa bestäms till stor del av passerande lågtryck och deras medföljande fronter med nederbörd dvs mellanbreddscykloner. Dessa bildas i det sk västvindsbältet och är en viktig del av den allm&...
