Information on:

 The current status of Arctic sea ice

O.A.Sys – Ocean Atmosphere Systems GmbH (OASys)

The scientific company O.A.Sys-Ocean Atmosphere Systems GmbH (www.oasys-research.deNouvelle fenêtre) works with a wide range of numerical and analytical tools in the field of earth system modelling. The three senior scientists in the OASys team each have more than fifteen years of experience in numerical modelling and analysis of parts of the climate system gained as research in renowned scientific institutions like the Max-Planck-Institute for meteorology, Hamburg, the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, the GKSS Research Centre, Geesthacht and the University of Hamburg and OASys GmbH.


Tasks attributed: In ACCESS OASys will  work on the quantitative network design, developing schemes on how to set up efficient observational networks needed for better forecasts in Marine transportation and in oil and gas exploration activities. This work will contribute to WP1, 2 and 4. In addition OASys will be involved in the consortium management in providing the Scientific and Technical Project Manager (STPM).


Principal Investigator:

Dr. Michael Karcher is a physical oceanographer with a focus on numerical modelling of high-latitude coupled ice-ocean systems.  Together with the Arctic modelling team at AWI, he and OASys participate in the multi-national Arctic Model Intercomparison Project (AOMIP). Michael Karcher is active in the data assimilation with NAOSIMDAS and the impact assessment studies in the EU project DAMOCLES and pollutant transport studies in the EU project ARCRISK. He also is co-chairing the international Arctic Subarctic Ocean Flux Study (ASOF)
