EUREC4A-OA: EUREC4A-OA

Improving the representation of small-scale nonlinear ocean-atmosphere interactions in Climate Models by innovative joint observing and modelling approaches.

EUREC4A-OA will implement ad-hoc innovative observations and a hierarchy of numerical simulations focusing on mesoscale and submesoscale ocean dynamics and the atmospheric boundary layer at scales ranging from 20 m to 1000 km over the northwest tropical North Atlantic. The aim is to advance our knowledge of the phenomenology and representation of air-sea interactions, physical and biogeochemical ocean small-scale non-linear processes in ESMs but also in NWPs, S2Ss and decadal forecasts operational systems.

KeyCLIM: KeyCLIM

The KeyCLIM project set out to better understand, calculate and reduce the uncertainty related to climate change in Northern Latitudes, especially in the Arctic. The project group has assembled new model scenarios and data documenting large and partly irreversible climate changes in the north for the next 50-300 years.

The projected enhanced warming of the northern latitudes in the forthcoming decades will impact the region’s hydrological cycle, the cryosphere and biogeochemical cycles, impacts which are associated with forecasted, significant changes of the Earth System functioning. It is not clear how the northern world will look like with a summer ice-free Arctic Ocean, changed atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns and the many specific responses of the Northern Earth system.

Global warming transforms the Arctic cloud cover

The Arctic is one of the cloudiest regions on the Earth. White carpet of clouds typically covers the Arctic during three quarters of year. In summertime, clouds reflect sunlight helping to keep the Arctic cool. In winter time, they capture and backscatter heat making the Arctic warmer than it could be under a clear sky.

Climate change will not reduce the wind energy potential over the Black Sea

Nansen Center scientists in Bergen and St. Petersburg have jointly studied how European wind energy resources may change in the future, with a focus on the Black Sea.
