Interaction between climate change and the cryosphere
The knowledge produced by such a research programme is relevant not only for the Nordic region, but also in a global perspective. The climate changes are experienced early and most intensively in the polar regions, and provide an early indication of the impact of global warming on the environment and society.
Some objectives of the sub-programme are to reinforce Arctic research cooperation in the Nordic region and internationally, to improve modelling of the climate change interactions with the cryosphere, and provide results for infrastructure risk assessments and possibilities.
The budget for this sub-programme is approximately 100 MNOK.
