Arctic environment feedback mechanisms are important for the management of climate change risks

Arctic environment feedback mechanisms are important for the management of climate change risks

The unique interaction between the Arctic and the atmosphere was analysed in extensive Nordic cooperation.

Researchers found that the identification and analysis of unique feedback mechanisms are essential for the Arctic environment in order to correctly target climate change mitigation and adaptation measures. The obtained results can be used, for example, for preparing more accurate descriptions of the interaction between the Arctic and the atmosphere for global climate models.
