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 European network for observing our changing planet
01/02/2016 - 31/01/2021

In the last decade a significant number of projects and programmes in different domains of environmental monitoring and Earth observation have generated a substantial amount of data and knowledge on different aspects related to environmental quality and sustainability. Big dat...


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 ...


International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2020

INTERACT aims for a geographically comprehensive and excellent state-of-the-art terrestrial research infrastructure throughout the Arctic and adjoining forest and alpine regions to identify environmental change, to facilitate understanding and prediction of future change and t...


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...


Beyond EPICA - Oldest Ice
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2019

To better constrain the response of Earth’s climate system to continuing emissions, it is essential to turn to the past. A key advance would be to understand the transition in Earth’s climate response to changes in orbital forcing during the 'mid-Pleistocene transition' (900 t...


International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic
01/01/2011 - 31/12/2015
Environmental change and particularly amplified global climate change are accelerating in the Arctic. These changes already affect local residents and feedback from the Arctic's land surface to the climate system, will have global implications. However, climate change and its imp...

Changing Permafrost in the Arctic and its Global Effects in the 21st Century
01/01/2011 - 31/10/2015
Permafrost is defined as ground that remains continuously at or below 0°C for at least two consecutive years; some 24% ofthe land surface in the northern Hemisphere is classified as permafrost. In the Northern high latitudes, strong warming hasbeen observed over the recent decade...

Health Risks: Impacts on health in the Arctic and Europe owing to climate-induced changes in contaminant cycling
01/06/2009 - 30/11/2013
Long-range transport of contaminants to the Arctic, the resulting exposures observed in Arctic human populations, and impacts of such exposures on human health have been the subject of considerable work in recent years, providing a baseline against which to compare future develop...
