A new method for constraining the ocean in coupled system model for long reanalysis and climate predictions

Nansen and Bjerknes scientists have for the first time demonstrated the capability - thanks to an advanced data assimilation method - to constrain ocean variability in key regions (e.g. North Atlantic, Equatorial and North Pacific) of a fully coupled Earth system model just using sea surface temperatures. This result opens new possibilities for a long fully coupled reanalysis dating back to 1850 and test thoroughly the skills of decadal predictions by the Norwegian Climate Prediction model. The research team lead by Dr.

Arctic climatic temperature amplification in the addressed in two resent papers in Tellus

Nansen Center scientists in Bergen and St. Petersburg have in two resent papers in the Tellus addressed the climatic temperature amplification in the Arctic, analysing respectively surface air temperature records and atmospheric modelling simulations results.

Award for most sited climate paper at SpringerLink in 2015

The paper Arctic sea ice and Eurasian climate: A Review was the most downloaded paper published in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences at SpingerLink in 2015. This review paper addressing the linkages between the climate in Arctic and in Europe, North America and Asia has been downloaded more that 1600 times.

Blue-Action: Arctic Impact on Weather and Climate

Blue-Action is a 5-year European project of Horizon 2020 Blue Growth coordinated by the Danish Meteorological Institute with 41 partners. Prof. Y. Gao is a key partner and is leading work package 3.

Blue-Action will provide fundamental and empirically-grounded, executable science that quantifies and explains the role of a changing Arctic in increasing predictive capability of weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere.To achieve this Blue- Action will take a transdisciplinary approach, bridging scientific understanding within Arctic climate, weather and risk management research, with key stakeholder knowledge of the impacts of climatic weather extremes and hazardous events; leading to the co-design of better services.This bridge will build on innovative statistical and dynamica
