Arctic ecosystem impact assessment of oil in ice under climate change (ACTION)

ACTION will develop data-driven mechanistic models based on field and lab experiments to assess cumulative impacts of climate and oil spills on a key Arctic fish species, emphasizing polar cod (Boerogadus saida), relevant to stakeholder policy development. The project will provide decision-makers in government as well as oil industry with more timely and precise information in a relevant format on the risks for marine species when planning for industrial activities, thereby reducing the envelope of uncertainty when developing regulatory measures and operational guidelines.
