Exploring future polar climates


Despite the crucial role Polar Regions play in balancing the global climate system, there are still critical knowledge gaps regarding the impact of polar climate processes on multiple scales and how they are evolving with our changing global climate. PolarRES studies the interactions between the atmosphere, oceans, and sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic. By understanding these processes and interactions along with their innovative storylines approach, PolarRES assesses how to make climate projections in the Polar Regions more reliable for assessing social and environmental impacts of climate change.


PolarRES utilises novel storylines to project the impacts of climate change on the Polar environment and society. These storylines are connected to global climate change to better understand the changing Arctic and Antarctic climate, and the risk to the Polar environment. The response of the Polar environment to these storylines will vary by hemisphere and their individual dynamics.
