Arctic Impact on Weather and Climate (Blue-Action)

Description:

Blue-Action will improve stakeholders' capacity to adapt to climate change by evaluating the impact of Arctic warming on the northern hemisphere and developing new techniques to improve forecast accuracy at sub-seasonal to decadal scales. Blue-Action will specifically work to understand and simulate the linkages between the Arctic and the global climate system, and the Arctic’s role in generating weather patterns associated with hazardous conditions and climatic extremes.

Access to reliable weather and climate information will support businesses, policymakers, and local communities in safeguarding human health, wellbeing, economic growth, and environmental sustainability.

By improving the capacity to predict the weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere, Blue-Action will improve the safety and wellbeing of people in the Arctic and across the Northern Hemisphere, to reduce the risks associated with Arctic operations and resource exploitation, and to support evidence-based decision-making by policymakers worldwide.
