Abstract:
This talk reviews the rationale, design and results of the Arctic Freshwater Synthesis (AFS), which was produced in response to joint requests from the World Climate Research Program’s Climate and Cryosphere Project (WCRP-CliC), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and the Arctic Council’s Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP). The AFS was published as a special issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research-Biogeosciences co-authored by 41 authors from 10 countries, and focused on assessing the various Arctic freshwater sources, fluxes, storages and effects, under five key components: atmosphere, oceans, terrestrial hydrology, terrestrial ecology and resources. These are briefly reviewed with a special focus placed on some new emerging research programs, including potential freshwater-adaptation approaches that could be employed to deal with the risks and benefits arising from changes in Arctic freshwater resources.
