The consequences of climate change are particularly evident in the Arctic. Significant changes and reductions in Arctic sea ice extent and volume opens for expansion of economic activities such as shipping, tourism, fisheries, as well as gas and oil extraction. Changes in sea ice cover and distribution have and will have consequences for national and international management of and activities in the Arctic waters.

Towards this endeavour, India and Norway, are working together to understand the dynamics of Arctic Ocean and its implications for future climate and human activities.
