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 Arctic that are of importance to ecosystem 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 biodiversity.
  • 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 Arctic and beyond.
