– the Arctic Freshwater Synthesis is a CliC targeted activity

The presentations from the Arctic Freshwater Synthesis steering committee and component leads meeting, 11-12 November 2013, in Stockholm, Sweden are now available at: http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/activities/targeted/afs/downloads.

The AFS is a contribution to the 3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP III), the WCRP’s Grand Challenges, and AMAP’s Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic. The overall goal of the AFS is to synthesize our current scientific understanding of Arctic freshwater sources, fluxes, storage and effects, with the project structured around 5 major components: atmosphere, ocean, terrestrial hydrology, terrestrial ecology and resources.
