ICEHOT will utilize ocean observations and state-of-the-art numerical model simulations to address key knowledge gaps in our understanding of the sea-ice variability and decline in the Barents Sea during the last five decades. These knowledge gaps include what governs the changes in oceanic pathways and at what time scales, through which mechanisms is the ocean circulation affecting the sea-ice cover, and how does the changing sea-ice cover affect the air-ocean exchanges, including feedbacks. By addressing these scientific questions, we will enhance our ability to distinguish natural from human-made changes in key elements of the Arctic climate system at locations representing the frontiers between boreal and arctic ecosystems.
