DAMOCLES : Developing Arctic Modeling and Observing Capabilities for Long-term Environmental Studies

Description:

DAMOCLES is an integrated ice-atmosphere-ocean monitoring and forecasting system designed for observing, understanding and quantifying climate changes in the Arctic. DAMOCLES is specifically concerned with the potential for a significantly reduced sea ice cover, and the impacts this might have on the environment and on human activities, both regionally and globally. http://www.damocles-eu.org/publications/DAMOCLES_publications.shtml
