Difusión: 2016 Fall AGU Session: New frontiers in Process Modeling of the Polar Regions

New Frontiers in Process Modeling of the Polar Regions

Session ID#: 12814

Session Description:

Glacial, permafrost landscapes, and sea ice controlled coastal zones of the polar regions are all uniquely dominated by prolonged freezing and short-lived thaw. The polar environment is rapidly responding to warming and shifts in these freeze-thaw dynamics. Rapid change causes an urgent need to improve our predictability of the polar system at several scales, global, regional and local. This session aims to highlight new developments in numerical modeling of Arctic climate, sea-ice, ice-sheet and permafrost and periglacial processes, which can ultimately lead to improved predictability of the polar system. We welcome contributions on detailed process modeling of the Arctic natural system, as well as more integrated models of the polar system. This session will have a special focus on new approaches to model-data comparison, techniques for uncertainty quantification, scaling and model intercomparison.
