Ongoing Projects

FAMOS

The follow-up project of AOMIP, the 'Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS)', is an international effort to focus on enhancing collaboration and coordination among arctic marine and sea ice modelers, theoreticians and observationalists based on a set of activities starting from generating hypotheses, to planning research included both observations and modeling, and to finalizing analyses synthesizing major results from the field studies and coordinated numerical experiments.

ICE-ARC

ICE-ARC (Ice, Climate, Economics – Arctic Research on Change) FP-7 EU.

TRIMODAL

Using Tracers, Atmospheric Indices and Model Output to explain changes in the Arctic Ocean Inflow and Outflow through Fram Strait.

Terminated Projects

AOMIP

The Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (AOMIP) is an international effort to identify systematic errors in Arctic Ocean models under realistic forcing.

ARCRISK (2009-2014)

Arctic Health Risks: Impacts on health in the Arctic and Europe owing to climate-induced changes in contaminant cycling

Arctic Model Intercomparison MITgcm - NAOSIM

As a subcontract for the Stiftung Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), O.A.Sys performs an intercomparison of two Arctic/North Atlantic versions of the MITcgm and the NAOSIM. The work is a contribution to the project 'The North Atlantic as Part of the Earth System: From System Comprehension to Analysis of Regional Impacts' funded by the German Ministry for Research and Education.
