eScience tools for investigating climate change

 

eSTICC (eScience Tools for Investigating Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes) is a Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) funded by NordForsk. eSTICC aims for a more accurate description of the high-latitude feedback processes in the climate system by improving the eScience tools for the climate research community.

Results of eSTICC are collected on this web page together with more information about eSTICC itself.

Millennium-scale simulation of the Greenland ice sheet and climate change

Above you can see simulations concerning surface air temperature in the Arctic and Greenland glacier ice thickness, e.g. when will the Arctic see ice be gone during summer and during winter according to the simulations. For details of the simulation and credits see video at 4:20.

eSTICC session at Arctic Circle Assembly 2017

eSTICC is holding a breakout session at the Arctic Circle assembly 2017 in Reykjavik, Iceland. The annual Arctic Circle Assembly is the largest annual international gathering on the Arctic, attended by more than 2000 participants from around 50 countries. It is attended by heads of states and governments, ministers, members of parliaments, officials, experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, indigenous representatives, environmentalists, students, activists, media and others from the growing international community of partners and participants interested in the future of the Arctic.

This breakout session presents results from eSTICC on climate change in the Arctic. The session takes place on Saturday, October 14th at 17:30-19:00 in room Hafnarkot on the first floor of Harpa Conference Centre. The talks can be found on the program of the Arctic Circle website and here.
