Periodic Reporting for period 1 - IceDynamO (The dynamics of sea ice variability – role of the oceans)
Reporting period: 2018-05-01 to 2020-04-30
The overall objective of this project was therefore to reconstruct the variability of oceanic and sea-ice conditions on the Northeast Greenland shelf during the Holocene (our present interglacial, the last 11,700 years) and investigate their connection to the Greenland ice-sheet dynamics, ocean circulation and global climate.
The results enhance the estimation of future responses of Arctic water masses to environmental changes. Thus, the work from this project has important implications not just for the community of paleo-scientists but provides crucial research-data for modellers in order to improve predictive climate models.
