D6.1 Climate model initialization: first report on the added value of using data from INTAROS

The first results of the work performed in Task 6.1 are described, that has the main goal of improving the skill of climate predictions, investigating the benefits related to the exploitation of INTAROS data.

In particular,results from seasonal and decadal prediction systems are presented, with two different General Circulation Models (NorCPM and EC-Earth), with a central focus on the...

D6.10 Report on ecosystem management for managers

This report is summarizing the discussions during two virtual meetings in 2021 with different
stakeholders with interest in the Barents Sea and off-Greenland ecosystems, respectively. The
content of the meetings was based on the work from Task 6.8 “Demonstrations for fisheries and environmental management agencies” and Task 6.2. “Improved ecosystem understanding and management”....

D6.16 Natural Hazard Assessment in the Arctic

The document describes the results of individual studies in Task 6.4 "Natural hazard Assessment in the Arctic" and how data and methods from the iAOS advances our understanding of the selected hazards.
The document also describes of the needs of the stakeholders related to snow avalanche, mass loss from ice sheets and glaciers, earthquake, landslide, and tsunami. Furthermore, data and...

D6.17 Ice discharge from glaciers to the ocean

This document - Ice discharge from glaciers to the ocean: Model-based demonstration of calculations of ice discharge from selected glaciers to the ocean, aimed to predict the contribution of glaciers to sea level rise, has been carried out as part of Task 6.4-Natural hazards in the Arctic. This deliverable describes a modelling-based approach developed by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM...

D6.2 Impact of climate change on Greenland ecosystems and fish resources, first report on decadal scale changes in fish community structure along the West Greenland coast

Based on summer trawls surveys along the West Greenland coast and shelf, the spatiotemporal
variation in the demersal fish community was quantified between 1993 and 2016. A
substantial change was observed with 4 to 10-fold increase in total biomass, increase in the
average size of specimens and an increase in the average trophic level in net hauls. Findings
suggest a...

D6.3 Extension of ecosystem management systems - v1

The aim of D 6.3 is to use the existing environmental and fisheries reporting and management systems of the Barents Sea and off Greenland to demonstrate how data from an iAOS may allow for implementing similar procedures in other parts.

In Case Barents Sea, established and proposed indicators by the Barents Sea management plan, are selected for modelling and the results evaluated. Here...

D6.4 Report and model fields on ice-ocean state estimate in the Arctic Ocean

Based on Observing System Simultion Experiments, an evaluation is provided, first, of the capacity of the exist-ing Arctic Ocean observing system on capturing different aspects of the Arctic Ocean changes. Subsequently a 10-year ocean-sea ice synthsis is produced, by assimilating all available observations into a coupled ocean-sea ice mode using the adjoint method.

D6.5 Risk Assessment System V1

The motivation for developing an integrated risk assessment system is to provide insights and to simplify the process of integration, analysis and use of INTAROS data within Arctic marine risk assessments. This will support business planning and development in the Arctic region. An overview of information, products and services requested by users representing primarily the private commercial...

D6.6 Results of local community studies

POLICY BRIEFS FROM LOCAL COMMUNITY STUDIES IN GREENLAND AND SVALBARD, DEMONSTRATING EXAMPLES OF CROSS-WEAVING DATA FROM LOCAL AND SCIENTIFIC OBSERVATION SYSTEMS

The Arctic environment is changing rapidly. A range of observing approaches is being used to increase our understanding of the environment and to mobilize sound decisions in response. To demonstrate ‘real world’ examples of the...

D6.9 Support to Business Planning and Development

The future business development perspectives for three important components of the Arctic Blue Economy: (1) maritime transport via the Arctic Ocean, (2) cruise industry in the Svalbard area and (3) fishery in the Barents Sea have been analysed. The maritime transport and cruise industry will potentially increase substantially over the coming years due to retreat of Arctic sea ice although the...
