Project description
The Arctic climate has been changing rapidly, and it is unclear how current international climate stabilization agreements will affect the Arctic; will they lead to a stabilization also in the Arctic or are the feedbacks strong enough that an ice-free summer Arctic will appear in this century? To answer such questions, we need to understand the feedback processes much better and also understand the links between the global climate and the regional climate in the Arctic.

The successful candidates will focus on one of two aspect of Arctic climate:

  1.  Large-scale atmospheric dynamics and transport of heat and moisture into the Arctic;
  2.  The energy budget at the ocean/sea-ice/atmosphere interface. The tools can be analysis of observations, climate modeling, analysis of remote sensing or reanalysis products or a combination of all.

The successful candidates will work within the interdisciplinary project "Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS)", a collaboration between the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES) and the Department of Meteorology (MISU), funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, www.wallenberg.com/kaw/nya-satt-att-mata-ska-ge-battre-klimatmodeller.
