Arctic Amplification

AC3 is the short name of the DFG funded Transregio project: Arctic Amplification: Climate relevant atmospheric and surface processes and feedback mechanisms. The project has successfully completed its first project phase and is currently in its second phase. The overarching goals for phase II are to identify, investigate, and evaluate the key processes contributing to Arctic amplification, to improve the understanding of the local and remote feedback mechanisms, and to quantify their relative importance for Arctic amplification. For details please find the AC3 project home page: 

The AWI sea ice physics section contributes to two sub-projects of AC3 (see boxes below): Project C01 on spatial heterogeneity and temporal evolution of surface properties and Project D04 on meridional heat transports and regional processes.
