How will the climate be impacted by future changes to the Arctic's sea ice and snow cover?

This is a key issue in a newly established research project that will examine climate change in the Arctic over the next 30 years. The study will show how the reduced amounts of sea ice and snow in the Arctic are interacting with climate change.

Climate change – this could be the situation in Europe in 30 years time

In the early 2040s, average global temperatures could have risen two degrees above pre-industrial levels. A research project that examines the effects of a two degree increase in temperature presents a future scenario of the climate change facing Europe.

Increased knowledge of climate change in the Arctic

Changed wind patterns and varying circulation in the ocean affect the future of the Arctic. Researchers have ascertained this after nearly four years of work in a multidisciplinary project to increase knowledge of the climate in the Arctic.

SMHI develops forecasts for the solar energy sector

Short-term forecasts for direct solar radiation will be developed by researchers from the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute within the framework of a European research project on solar energy. A forecast of the amount of solar radiation and coming cloudiness would be of great benefit to the solar energy sector.

Future torrential rainfall

Changes in the climate are expected to result in heavier rainfall. Calculations with climate models show that a heavy downpour will give 20-30 per cent more rain at the turn of the next century.
