LEGACY: Nansen LEGACY

The Nansen Legacy provides an integrated scien­tific knowledge base required for the sustainable management through the 21st century of the environment and marine resources of the Barents Sea and adjacent Arctic Basin.

The Nansen Legacy is a joint, concrete and ambitious plan to follow Nansen’s example in exploring the Arctic. To establish a holistic understanding of a changing Arctic Ocean and ecosystem, the project will provide the scientific knowledge base needed for future sustainable resource management in the Barents Sea and the adjacent Arctic Basin. An ice-free Arctic is gradually emerging. The winter sea ice retreat is date most pronounced in the Barents Sea, the Atlantic gateway to the Arctic.

AOIP: Atmosphere-Ocean-Ice Interactions in Polar and sub-polar regions

This project is about improving our understanding of some atmosphere-ocean-ice interaction processes, as well as our ability to model them and their impact

The main goal of AOIP is to improve our understanding of atmosphere-ocean-ice interaction processes, as well as our ability to model them and their impact. The underlying goal is to assess the need for these processes to be correctly simulated in the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM), to help defining the path for its future development, and to thus to help establish it as one of the reference tools to explore the climate in polar and sub-polar regions.

SIA: ESA-CCI Sea Ice age

Sea ice age (SIA) is an indicator of changing sea ice state together with changing climate.

The importance of knowledge of the Arctic sea ice age is twofold. First, it is an indicator of changing sea ice state together with changing climate: the Arctic sea ice has become thinner and younger during the last decades. Second, accurate knowledge of the sea ice age provides accurate classification of sea ice types such as first-year ice (FYI) and multi-year ice (MYI), which is crucial information for sea ice thickness retrieval from altimeters.
