Drivers and impacts of North Atlantic freshwater and heat fluxes unsettling modern-day climate

DIMSUM forms part of the wider Climate Consequences of Rapid Ocean Changes (CCROC) programme.

It specifically addresses Challenge 2 on determining heat and freshwater budgets of the North Atlantic Ocean using observations and models. However, DIMSUM goes beyond the mere quantification of budgets by focussing on dynamics and mechanisms that drive changes in the coupled ice-ocean-atmosphere system in the wider Arctic – North Atlantic region.
