Horizon 2020 CRiceS project on Climate relevant interactions and feedbacks

The Horizon-2020 CRiceS (Climate Relevant interactions and feedbacks: the key role of sea ice and Snow in the polar and global climate system) project coordinated by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI, Finland) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France). The new project (start in September 2021) led by Prof. Risto Makkonen (FMI) and Prof. Jennie Thomas (CNRS) will contribute to better understanding of the ocean-ice-snow-atmosphere system and polar processes in a global context in the Arctic and Antarctic regions through observations (in-situ, remote sensing, community), modelling (process, regional, global) and knowledge exchange (outreach, stakeholders engagement, improved climate projections, risks, impacts, knowledge of feedbacks).

The CRiceS consortium includes 21 partners – Universities and research organizations – from Europe, Africa, Asia and North America (Finland, France, Norway, Sweden, Italy, South Africa, Germany, Spain, UK, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Canada, India, and Russia). The Russian PEEX collaborating partner – the Institute of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Geophysics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (ICMMG SB RAS) – is involved in climate scale modelling tasks for the Arctic Ocean.
