Research Projects at Centre for Ice and Climate

Centre for Ice and Climate is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, but many of the team members are funded from the Niels Bohr Institute, personal grants, or through other research projects and programmes that share or complement the objectives of the centre.

A non-exhaustive list includes:

The East Greenland Ice-core Project - EastGRIP - is an international ice core research project aimed at retrieving an ice core by drilling through the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS).
Greenland Climate Research Centre is concerned with the expected impacts of climate change on Arctic marine, limnic and terrestrial environments and on Greenlandic society.

EU synergy project, with Norwegian and danish project partners, which main hypothesis is that Arctic and sub-Arctic sea ice cover excerts important controls on past and future Greenland temperature and ice sheet variations.
Mount Brown Antarctica climate record

A 2000-year annual climate record from coastal East Antarctica, to study climate variability in the Indian Ocean basin.

An EU Seventh Framework science programme that will improve projections of the contribution of ice to future sea-level rise.

An EU COST Action project integrating ice core, marine and terrestrial records with a focus on Europe in the period 60 000 to 8 000 years ago.

A Marie Curie Initial Training Network. The Centre for Ice and Climate is participating in this program utilizing triple isotope effects to reconstruct the globes biological activity in the past.

North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling Project (NEEM) is an international ice core research project aimed at retrieving an ice core from North-West Greenland.
North-South Climate Connections
The North-South Climate Connections seeks to find an answer to how the climate at the two hemispheres is coupled.
A collaborative EU project combining multi-disciplinary paleoclimate records to analyse, model and reconstruct abrupt climate changes during the previous interglacial period.

REnland ice CAP project (RECAP)
The RECAP project is about retrieving and analyzing a high quality ice core from the Renland ice cap
Nordic Centre of Excellence aimed at quantifying the current and future melt-rate of land-based ice in the Arctic and North-Atlantic region and to assess the consequences from this.  (opens in new window)
Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic Greenland Ice Sheet Report - GRIS (link to summary).
The primary objectives of the project are to map melt water extent of the Greenland ice sheet and its impact (pdf file with project description)
