The Greenland Flow Distortion experiment (GFDex) is an international
fieldwork and modelling-based project to investigate the role that
Greenland plays in distorting atmospheric flow over and around it:
affecting local and remote weather systems and, via air-sea interaction
processes, the coupled climate system.
The project team includes scientists from the UK, Canada, Norway,
Iceland and the USA. The UK Met Office and the ECMWF are project
partners, working with us to provide sensitive area predictions
for the field campaign. GFDex is an IPY approved project, part of
the IPY-THORPEX cluster, and is being funded by the Natural Environment
Research Council, the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric
Sciences, EUFAR and EUCOS.
