The atmosphere transports large amounts of moisture to high latitudes, which has been shown to have significant impacts on the Arctic system and on the underlying sea ice cover. The transport can be episodic in the form of atmospheric rivers, which makes it challenging to detect and model these events, and especially to quantify their impacts. In this session two scientists discussed their studies of Arctic Atmospheric Rivers and their impacts using atmospheric reanalysis and climate models.
