ArcTrain: Feedbacks between ocean circulation in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and projected glacier mass change

2019 - 2022

The In­ter­na­tio­nal Re­se­arch Trai­ning Group ArcTrain ("Processes and impacts of climate change in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Canadian Arctic") aims to edu­ca­te PhD stu­dents in an in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry en­vi­ron­ment that com­bi­nes the strength in ma­ri­ne geo­sci­en­ces and en­vi­ron­men­tal phy­sics in Bre­men with com­ple­men­ta­ry skills and ex­per­ti­se in sea-ice and ice-sheet mo­de­ling in a con­sor­ti­um of eight Ca­na­di­an part­ner uni­ver­si­ties. The sci­en­ti­fic team with the PhD stu­dents in its cent­re aims to ad­van­ce the un­der­stan­ding of the va­ria­bi­li­ty of the Arc­tic Oce­an and the cryo­s­phe­re on time sca­les of de­ca­des to mill­en­nia and to use the­se re­sults to ro­bust­ly as­sess the im­pact of pro­jec­ted fu­ture cli­ma­te chan­ges on the Arc­tic. Arc­Train has been fun­ded sin­ce 2013 through the German Research Foundation (DFG) and through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
