BCPU Coordinating
4SICE 2022-2025 RCN China-Norway; 9,9; NERSC (NO) We lead this project and will further improve NorCPM for sea ice prediction. Wang, Counillon, Shen, Chiu, Keenlyside.
COMBINED 2022-2026 RCN China-Norway; 10; UiB (NO) The COMBINED project sets out to better understand interactions between the rapid warming of the Arctic and Tibetan Plateau, as well as other remote and regional feedback processes. We lead this project and contribute with NorCPM, using refined initialisation methods of the Arctic and Tibetan Plateau cryosphere. Keenlyside, Li, Bethke, Svendsen, Chiu.
PARCIM 2022-2026 Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research; 8; NERSC (NO) We lead this project and will develop assimilation of paleoproxy data so as to produce a long millenium reanalysis that can help us to better understand mutli-decadal variability. Counillon, Wang, Singh, Omrani, Keenlyside, Svendsen, Årthun.
DYNASOR 2022-2025 Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research; 8; UiB and HI (NO) Dynasor will further develop our mechanistic understanding of Arctic-Atlantic climate variability and predictability, namely, clarifying how currents and other features of the North Atlantic Ocean interact. Sandø, Årthun.
CoRea 2020-2023 RCN; 9,7; NERSC (NO) We lead this project, and will contribute advanced data assimilation methods and reanalysis dataset for improving climate prediction skill. Wang, Svendsen.
ROADMAP 2020-2024 JPIs Ocean and Climate; 27; MPI-Met (DE) We co-lead this project, and will contribute dynamical analysis and novel experiments to understand roles of ocean-atmosphere interaction and teleconnections in the climate of our region. Keenlyside, Omrani, Shen, Gao, Counillon, Langehaug.
TRIATLAS 2019-2023 EU H2020; 110; UiB We contribute to TRIATLAS’ key aim to develop climate-based ecosystem predictions for the tropical and south Atlantic. Keenlyside, Counillon, Svendsen, Silva, Barthélémy, Fransner, Hordoir, Primo
