20th and 21st Century Sea Ice

PI: Thierry Fichefet
Institution: Université Catholique de Louvain
Additional Investigators: Olivier Arzel
The aim of the project is to

1) to assess the ability of current coupled climate models to simulate the evolution of the Arctic and Antarctic sea-ice covers over the 20th century (model-data and model-model comparison);

2) to critically compare the Arctic and Antarctic sea-ice projections over the 21st century carried out with coupled climate models.

Model data: ice concentration, ice thickness.
