Call Details

Work Programme : Food - Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research
Call Identifier : BG-10-2016: Impact of Arctic changes on the weather and climate
Call Type : Targeted call
Call Description : The climate is changing more rapidly in the Arctic than in any other region. There is evidence that these changes strongly affect ecosystems, people and communities inside and outside of the Arctic, including in Europe and North America.
Proposals should develop innovative approaches to improving the descriptions and modelling of the mechanisms, processes and feedback affecting Arctic climate change and its impacts on the weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere, to further develop state-of-the-art climate models and predictions. Model performance should be assessed, and their ability to represent the links between polar and lower latitudes should be evaluated through coordinated model experiments. Actions should also explore the potential that an improved Arctic observation system – the subject of another topic in this call – would have on the accuracy of weather, and climate forecasts in the Northern Hemisphere, including Europe and North America, and also should identify gaps in data and observations.
Publication Date : 14 October 2015
Deadline : 17 February 2016
