Combining analysis of observed climate data with global and regional climate models GREENICE focuses on the atmosphere’s response to changes in ocean heat, sea ice and snow cover. It will enhance the ability to predict both anthropogenic and naturally-driven change on 10-30 year timescales. GREENICE will undertake case studies in selected northern communities to increase understanding of the present and historical adaptation of these communities to both climate and social change. The project will include their local knowledge, fostering a mutual dialogue between researchers and stakeholders. A more comprehensive understanding of future changes will facilitate the ability of Arctic societies to adapt to climate and other changes, and to address problems of green-growth development.
