Feedbacks involving clouds and the cryosphere

WP4 aims to understand how feedbacks involving the coupled atmosphere, cryosphere and hydrosphere contribute to the accelerated rate of Arctic warming.

1. Ensure that NorESM reproduces Arctic cloud phase observations.

2. Achieve a realistic NorESM treatment of snow hydrology over sea ice.

3. Perform the first NorESM simulation with interactive land ice to study the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet.
