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.
