Arctic Climate Change, Economy and Society (ACCESS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2015,

The Arctic is engaged in a deep climatic evolution. This evolution is quite predictable at short (year) and longer scales (several decades), but it is the decadal intermediate scale that is the most difficult to predict. This is because the natural variability of the system is large and dominant at this scale, and the system is highly non linear due to positive and negative feedback between sea ic ...

... n particular, are expected to be most pronounced in the polar regions. For this reason, a multi-disciplinary research infrastructure covering all important elements of the coupled Earth System in the Arctic is a very valuable tool to quantify the ongoing global change and to verify the capability of Earth System models to predict future changes. The proposed EFRI project ""Svalbard Integrated Arct ...

... gation in dynamic ice conditions. This system is particularly efficient in case of large, AFRAMAX size or larger, oil tankers navigating in the Baltic, Okhotsk Sea and also in the western Russian Arctic. These tankers include a large parallel midbody and a hull form that is not especially suitable for ice breaking. A hull rupture of these tankers in compressive ice would lead to catastrophic conse ...

"The ERICON-AB project will generate the strategic, legal, financial and organisational frameworks required from National Governments and the European Commission to commit financial resources to the construction and running of the European Polar Research Icebreaker AURORA BOREALIS. Scientific management frameworks will be assessed including mechanisms to handle dedicated large-scale multi-year or ...
