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.
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.
