Brief overview of Scientific Outcomes

WP1, Olsen, PhD, Johannessen, Omar, Jeansson, de Lange, Mork

Interior SPNA Carbon variations since early 90s (GLODAPv2 & Cruise)  June 2015
Surface SPNA pCO2 variations along 60N since 2005 (Nuka and SURATLANT) Dec 2016
Relationship between surface pCO2 and deep winter mixing in Irminger Sea (ARGO, XBTs, Nuka, GLODAPv2) Dec 2016

WP2, Ninnemann, Postdoc, Kleiven

Holocene surface hydrography and stratification from planktic formaminifera, liked with existing overflow chronologies June 2016
Accurate age model from ash layers – exact timing of events Dec 2015
Suess corrected d13C sections for tracer interpretation Dec 2015

WP3, Tjiputra, Schwinger

Ranked preformance of CMIP5 models in SPNA June 2015
RCP8.5 and 2.6 response of SPNA from best CMI5 model(s) June 2016
Biogeochemial impacts of this response Dec 2016
 

Fieldwork

100 XBTs deployed from Nuka winter 2014 and winter 2015 (A. Olsen, Gilles Reverdin)

2 ARGO drifters deployed summer 2014, OVIDE cruise (KA Mork, Virginie Thierry)

SURATLANT (Reykjavik- Boston, surface carbon, N. Metzl)

Continuous surface pCO2 from Nuka (Abdir Omar, PhD, Tor de Lange)

Irminger Sea cruise 2015 (A. Olsen, E. Jeansson, uni carbon group, GEO folks)
