An advanced model of 21st century Arctic change
The EU-funded CHARTER project aims to advance state-of-the-art (SOTA) knowledge on Arctic biodiversity change and social-ecological systems. It will achieve this by investigating drivers/feedbacks of cryospheric change, incorporating local peoples’ ways of knowing. Moreover, it aims to elucidate effects of biodiversity changes on local communities and help integrate biochemical soil carbon exchange, sea ice and albedo into an earth system model, incorporating all of these into the latest Arctic regional climate modelling efforts. The project constitutes an ambitious effort to create an advanced SOTA model of 21st century Arctic change with major socio-economic implications for the cryosphere.
