Abstract
Objectives:
The overall aim of AICSEX is to compare the natural variability and trends during the last century, for selected
observed climate sensitive variables and coupled global/nested climate models, in order to assess the model
capabilities for prediction of climate changes in the Arctic, Nordic and Baltic Seas in this century. In the last
period, the project focused on completing the simulations and assessing the performance of the models used.
Furthermore, the economic impact of a melting Arctic ice cover was assessed for fisheries, shipping, offshore
and hydroelectric energy industries through a project dedicated industrial users reference group.
