North Atlantic - Arctic coupling in a changing climate: impacts on ocean circulation, carbon cycling and sea-ice. (NAACOS)

The overriding objectives of NAACOS has been to develop and refine oceanographic models using remote sensing and observations to evaluate the impact of high latitude climate change on circulation, deep water formation, sea-ice and carbon flux, and their implications at regional scales. To this end, this project is putting in place, multi-disciplinary, knowledge-based tools and models that can reduce the uncertainty of, and directly contribute to sound and robust policy strategies regarding the expected increase in maritime activities in northern seas.

  NAACOS is a 4 year project, funded by the Danish Council for Strategic Research
