Unpredictable Arctic – extreme weather events
The objective of this work package is to document and improve awareness of the many consequences of extreme weather events in the Definitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More that are of importance to All the living organisms (including people) in an area as well as its physical environment, functioning together as a unit. An ecosystem is made up of plants, animals, microorganisms, soil,... More services, local and global communities, so that appropriate timely responses can be made.
The specific aims are to:
- Document the effects of extreme weather events on rapid changes in Biological diversity. The many and varied forms of life on Earth (collectively known as biota). As well as diversity of species (species diversity), there is also diversity within populations of a... More.
- Identify the societal impacts of extreme weather on local communities through community engagement.
- Evaluate the ability of current state-of-the-art weather predictions to forecast such events.
- The WP will also provide guidance on how the INTERACT network can be used to improve weather forecasts and the way they are used in the Definitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More and beyond.
