Work Package 2

Enhanced weather and climate models

Work Package 2 has three primary objectives:

  • To improve models in how they representation of Arctic weather and climate through improved process descriptions, a more consistent model coupling methodology, and a better representation of climate feedbacks.
  • To develop innovative methods – using observations and a variety of model configurations – to facilitate parameter optimisation for physical processes in coupled model systems for numerical weather prediction (NWP) and climate.
  • To assess the added value of APPLICATE’s development of process representation in weather and climate models in the Arctic.


Work package 2 is led by Gunilla Svensson from Stockholm University and and Ed Blockley from the UK MetOffice.
