Short description of SVALI:
The Nordic Centre of Excellence SVALI will study basic cryospheric processes using remote sensing, airborne and in-situ measurements, and carry out advanced Earth System Modelling with focus on land ice in the Arctic/North-Atlantic area. The ultimate goal is to answer these key questions: How fast is land ice volume in the Arctic and North-Atlantic area changing, and why? Will these processes continue to accelerate? What are the consequences for sea-level and ocean circulation? What are the implications for society? GEUS will be involved in observing the present state of the cryosphere, process studies and head the outreach activity of the centre.
