INDIA-CLIM: Decadal to multi-decadal variability in the Indian Monsoon Rainfall and teleconnection with Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)

India-CLIM will analyze comprehensive data sets of climate variables for India and output from Earth System model simulations, in order to investigate the variability of the Indian Monsoon with special focus on the wet season of the summer monsoon.

The main hypothesis in the project is that the AMO is an intrinsic oceanic mode and that the associated SST anomalies in Atlantic Ocean can impact the Indian Summer Monsoon through teleconnection.

In order to test our hypothesis, we will use the re-analysis and observed data as well as IPCC/CMIP5 simulations to explore the decadal to multi-decadal variability of Indian Summer Monsoon and the teleconnection with AMO.

GCloudl: Arctic clouds (Research Collaboration)

Significant information from fragmented Russian polar expeditions and stations, need to be processed to improve our capacity to simulate, predict and communicate the vital environmental knowledge.

Project work flow

The project will be completed in three steps:
Step 1 [completed]. Archive preparation and control by A. Chernokulsky in IAP (October-December, 2017), followed by the joint statistical analysis and description by him and I. Esau in Bergen (NERSC, 15 days in December, 2017). At this stage, the tasks A and B will be completed.

SFE: Seasonal Forecasting Engine

The aim of SFE is to develop a state-of-the-art operational seasonal climate prediction system for Northern Europe and the Arctic. 

The aim of SFE is to develop a state-of-the-art operational seasonal climate prediction system for Northern Europe and the Arctic. Tailored seasonal predictions can be helpful tools for risk mitigation, and they can guide more efficient use of resources in many sectors of society, including agriculture, energy, water, transportation, and insurance. To our users, the SFE will be accessible through a flexible interface which can be queried to obtain predictions of relevant climate indices and variables.

TRAKT-2018: Transferable Knowledge and Technologies for High-Resolution Environmental Impact Assessment and Management

The majority of Nordic population is residing in complex urban environment. The concentrated emission of air pollutants, anthropogenic landscape and local climate modifications are lasting and have distant, often transboundary impact. -
