The aim of this research school is to provide students with an overview of state-of the-art research in the Arctic from observations through process understanding and model development to application. The research school will have five sessions addressing:

(1) Observational capabilities: including in-situ measurements and satellite remote sensing, field campaigns and operational resources;
(2) Dynamics of the Arctic environment: what we know about the most important processes and how we include them in climate models;
(3) Surface coupling: a review of the multitude of surface coupling processes in the Arctic and current approaches to integrating this understanding in models at different scales;
(4) Climate projection and prediction: anthropogenically-forced and natural climate change in the Arctic, perspective from the 21st century and opportunities with climate prediction;
(5) Modelling for Arctic applications: using climate model results in other domains with examples from simulating marine primary production, future shipping routes, and other industrial activities in ice covered waters
