The Nordic Seas and the Arctic Ocean are focal points in the current discussions on global warming. Partly because of the already observed polar amplification and partly because the watermass transformation in the Nordic Seas is a key regulator for poleward heat transport in the Atlantic sector. The latter part is only poorly understood, and the goal of the proposed workshop was to bring together the observational, theoretical, and numerical expertise that exists in Germany and Scandinavia and lay the foundation for future collaborative projects.
While the workshop was focused on mixing physics in observations and OGCMs with different grids, the larger goal was to strengthen the oceanographic cooperation between the Denmark, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
