Global implications of Arctic climate processes and feedbacks

GLIMPSE

Project timeline
Start:
November 2002
Duration:
36 months
End:
October 2005
General Information
The target of GLIMPSE is to better identify and model the important key processes of the climate system, including natural variability, than has been done so far using coarse resolution AOGCMs. This will be carried out by introducing a better description of physical processes in the oceans, cryosphere, atmosphere, land and biosphere including their interactions in high- resolution regional climate models (RCMs). This will be based on identifying and modelling of the key processes and through an assessment of the improved understanding in the light of analysis of instrumental as well as paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental records. GLIMPSE will in particular address and reduce the mentioned deficiences in the Arctic by developing improved physical descriptions, understanding and parameterizations of regional Arctic climate feedbacks.
