Research project Arctic Climate Across Scales
The polar regions are especially sensitive for climate change and the warming the Arctic is more than twice as fast as elsewhere on Earth. The effects of this warming are large, with a dramatic loss of sea ice as an example.
Our research aims at understanding the most important processes for polar climate and its sensitivity, especially for the Arctic. The goal is to describe those in the computer models we often use to understand the climate system. The research is broad, on the ocean and the whole atmosphere –troposphere, stratosphere and mesosphere – and on all scales, from molecules, cloud droplets and turbulence to global dynamics.
