CliC Project

Climate and Cryosphere Project
Norway
http://clic.npolar.no/
Scientific Programme

The "Climate and Cryosphere" (CliC) project was established by the WCRP in March 2000. CliC addresses the entire cryosphere (i.e., snow cover, sea-, lake- and river- ice, glaciers, ice sheets, ice caps and ice shelves, and frozen ground including permafrost) and its relation to climate.

The principal goal of CliC is to assess and quantify the impacts of climatic variability and change on components of the cryosphere and their consequences for the climate system, and determine the stability of the global cryosphere.

In order to achieve this goal CliC has the supporting objectives to:

  • Enhance the observation and monitoring of the cryosphere in support of process studies, model evaluation, and change detection.
  • Improve understanding of the physical processes and feedbacks through which the cryosphere interacts within the climate system.
  • Improve the representation of cryospheric processes in models to reduce uncertainties in simulations of climate and predictions of climate change.
