IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

CYCLONES IN THE ARCTIC OCEAN AND THEIR EFFECT ON
Author : Lixin, Wei , Ting Qin , Timo Vihma and Bin Cheng
The cyclone activity plays a very important role in the Arctic climate system. Cyclones are closely linked with precipitation, atmospheric moisture budget and Sea ice processes distribution. In this study, cyclones entering the Arctic Ocean (cross into north of 70ơN from south) are investigated in the context of Climate change impacts on the cryosphere and variability. A cyclone tracking scheme of the University of Reading was applied. The scheme can be divided into three parts: re-processing (filtering), detecting and tracking. We used this scheme to construct cyclone tracks from the 6 hourly ERA Interim reanalyses for the period of 1979?2012.
