  • Project goals Co-ordinate Nordic modelling efforts on regional climate aspects within the Nordic countries Establish a better freshwater budget for now and in the near future (until about 2050) in the western part of the Arctic links with terrestrial hydrology snow, Greenland ice sheet, smaller ice caps, permafrost The role of freshwater changes in the marine ecosystems

  • Activities TASK 1: Break down of the hydrological cycle for Nordic Seas TASK 2: Atmospheric contributions to the freshwater budget TASK 3: Cryospheric contributions to the hydrological cycle TASK 4: Oceanic (including sea-ice) contribution to the freshwater budget TASK 5: Land surfaces contribution to the freshwater budget TASK 6: The role of changes in the freshwater budget - physical and biological change
