Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes

the NordForsk Nordic Centre of Excellence: eScience Tools for Investigating Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes (eSTICC) 19. September 2017

This session presents research on climate change in the Arctic, in particular: 

the interaction of the Greenland ice sheet with the climate system in warm scenarios, the impact of ice sheet melting on the Ocean, a Pan-Arctic study of aerosol properties and sources, modelling the effect of air quality regulation on the Arctic climate, and climate whirl at high latitudes: combining natural and social sciences in higher education and science outreach. These results are presented by scientists from the Nordic research projects “eScience Tools for Investigating Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes” (eSTICC) and “Stability and Variations of Arctic Land Ice” (SVALI). Both eSTICC and SVALI have been appointed and funded by NordForsk as Nordic Centres of Excellence.

  • Hans-Christen Hansson, Professor, Stockholm University: Modeling the effect of air quality regulation on the Arctic climate
  • Eyal Freud, Postdoctoral researcher, Stockholm University: Pan Arctic study of aerosol properties and sources
  • Antti Lauri, Research Director, University of Helsinki: Climate Whirl at High Latitudes: combining natural and social sciences in higher education and science outreach
  • Josefin Ahlkrona, Postdoctoral researcher, University of Kiel/Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean”: The Impact of Ice Sheet Melting on the Ocean – Reducing Uncertainty in Predictions of Future Sea-Level Rise and Ocean Circulation by Improving Computer Models
