B2BI - An international planning workshop to prepare the content and the organization of a North Atlantic-Arctic Research Initiative

Awarded: NOK 0.15 mill.

The workshop is part of the planning process for an international research initiative that when developed will provide integrated analyses of the ongoing changes in North Atlantic/Arctic ecosystems, infrastructures, and in human economic and social activities due to changing climate. In addition to promote more integration of existing observation networks and among classical research projects, this initiative will produce science assessments documenting status and trends, including presentation of policy relevant recommendations for actions based on science to governments and businesses. B2BI focuses upon the North Atlantic/Arctic ecosystems in a system ecological manner and investigates the current warming of the Arctic Ocean in a basin-wide manner, all the way from the formation of North Atlantic warm water to the creation of the cold and heavy deep North Atlantic water in the Arctic.
