Modelling the Polar regions in a global context
The Polar regions in a global context are poorly understood, hindering efforts at mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts. The EU-funded PolarRES project will provide fresh insights into key local-regional scale physical and chemical processes for atmosphere-ocean-ice interactions in the Arctic and Antarctic, the projected changes in the global circulation and their impacts on the environment and society. Consortium members will apply regional climate models (RCMs) to investigate the influence of projected changes in the global circulation on the climate of the Arctic and Antarctic. They will combine high-resolution simulations from state-of-the-art RCMs and next-generation fully coupled RCMs with a comprehensive range of existing and novel observations, including satellite images from relevant projects funded by the ESA Earth Observation Programme.
