[MZZ39-07] From the Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative towards the Northern Eurasia Future Initiative
Keywords:Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative , Northern Eurasia Future Initiative
The NEESPI Research Team has reorganized itself into “Northern Eurasia Future Initiative” (NEFI) and developed a new Science Plan released in June 2016. The Plan underwent a 6-month-long public review and was finalized at the end of 2016. Its description was thereafter split between two review papers: Groisman et al. (2017) and Monier et al. (2017). The first paper describes the Plan rationale and a new set of topical questions. The second paper describes a major modeling approach that will be employed in addressing the “what to do” questions of the NEFI Research. In the current presentation, we outline the new NEFI research foci and present latest NEFI findings including international projects in the Eurasian Arctic, boreal zone, and the Dry Land Belt of Northern Eurasia.
