    2021-2025: Climate response to a Bluer Arctic with increased newly-formed winter Sea ICe (BASIC)

    Project information:

    • Project owner: University of Bergen,
    • Project leader: Shengping He (shengping.he@uib.no)
    • Project period: 22.11.2021-21.11.2025
    • Type: Researcher Project
    • Public funding: 12 mill. kroner, funded by the Research Council of Norway
    • Project no.: 325440
    • Partners:Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center; Norwegian Institute for Air Research; Meteorologisk Institutt; Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences; University of Exeter;

    Primary and secondary objectives of the project: The primary objective is to understand the Arctic and Eurasian climate response to the new Arctic characterized bymore open waters in summer and an increasing volume of newly-formed sea ice in winter. We will achieve this by accomplishing the following secondary objectives:

    • quantify the impacts of more open seawater in summer on the Arctic oceanic conditions
    • identify the influences of deep Arctic warming (extending from the interior of the ocean to the middle troposphere) on the Eurasian winter climate
    • determine the effects of increasing newly-formed wintertime Arctic sea ice on the freshwater and heat budget inthe Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean, and the accompanying impacts on the AMOC
    • elucidate the gradually vanishing climatic impacts of summer-to-autumn Arctic sea ice in the 21st century as the Arctic Ocean is turning to an ‘ice-free’ state
    • demonstrate the predominance of Arctic ocean temperature over sea ice as a dominant climatic factor, once a tipping point is reached in the future.

    Project summary:

    The ChiNese NorwEgian partnership in Climate Teleonnection and prEDiction (CONNECTED) builds on an existing collaboration between three Norwegian institutions in Bergen and three Chinese institutions in Beijing and Nanjing. The activities are organized under the Nansen-Zhu International Research Centre located in Beijing, a joint venture established in November 2003. CONNECTED aims to capitalize on the existing cooperation, and further strengthen the research and research training activities by long termsupport for joint biennial summer schools with back-to-back workshops, PhD and Master students exchange visits between Norway and China with supervisors from both countries, and development of joint proposals to national and international funding agencies. The scientific focus is on better understanding of climate variability and climate trends using paleo (past)-climate data, instrumental data, and numerical models and theory to assess the importance of internal and external forcing of past, present and future climate. A central topic will be teleconnections in the climate system, i.e. how a change in climate in one part of the globe (e.g. temperatures in the Atlantic or shrinking sea ice cover in the Arctic) can influence climate on other parts of the globe (e.g. Eurasian winter temperatures), and how we can use this information to improve regional climate prediction and therefore regional climate service. The project will bring new partners into the Chinese-Norwegian cooperation in climate, increased research quality, more co-authorship in international peer reviewed journals, and more successful research funding applications to Chinese, Norwegian, or other international funding agencies.
