Arctic-subarctic ocean flux array for european climate: north


The climate of Northwest Europe is anomalously warm for its latitude and this warmth is maintained by a variety of processes and factors in the Nordic Seas and the Arctic. Possible changes include cooling which may occur both rapid and radical. Arctic warming over the last 50 years was three times stronger than the global increase of surface temperatures. ASOF-N, one part of the ASOF cluster, aims at understanding the controlling processes of climate change in the high latitude North Atlantic. To improve and validate models with a predictive power needed for the assessment of the socio-economic consequences of the potential changes which are already obvious in the Arctic, time series of oceanic parameters are required over time scales of decades. ASOF-N aims to advance the installation of a suitable cost effective component of a global ocean observation system in choke points of the oceanic circulation.
