Ongoing Projects


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.

EcoLight - Ecosystem functions controlled by sea ice and light in a changing Arctic

To be able to predict the physical conditions for the Arctic ecosystem in the ‚new Arctic‘, it is necessary to understand and parametrise the processes which determine the light and enery budget under the sea ice and snow under ‘first year ice’ conditions. For this we need a holistic approach that combines biology, optics, seaice and ocean physics, based on direct observations and remotely sensed information with numerical modelling. This is the overall goal of the joint project (with AWI, BAS and UCL) to which OASys contributes.
