Arctic cooperation

The Icelandic Meteorological Office cooperates with many agencies in related fields. With ongoing environmental changes, long term time-series are becoming increasingly important. These include time series of  weather-related factors, such as temperature, rainfall, air pressure and solar and cloud cover, time-series on  hydrology,  glaciology, sea-ice condition, earthquakes, floods, ice and sediment load in rivers. Such data from IMO is important, providing a benchmark for assessing ongoing changes in the Arctic region.
