Session announcement and Call for Abstracts
American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting
15-19 December 2008, San Francisco, California
Papers are invited for Session A35: Cooperative Studies Incorporating Measurements from Land-Based Atmospheric Arctic Observatories
The main mission of the International Arctic Systems for Observing the Atmosphere (IASOA) is coordination of atmospheric data collection and observatories. The effort supports the International Polar Year (IPY, www.ipy.org), but is intended to establish a continuing network consortium into the foreseeable future. Data of interest to the IASOA consortium include measurements of standard meteorology, greenhouse gases, atmospheric radiation, clouds, pollutants, chemistry, aerosols, and surface energy balances. IASOA is responsive to growing evidence that the earth system may be approaching environmentally critical thresholds within decadal time scales. The information from IASOA will not only enhance scientific understanding but will also support decisions by the global community regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.
The IASOA IPY project invites papers on Arctic atmospheric research. We are particularly interested in receiving papers comparing measurements from two or more of the IASOA observatories: Abisko (Sweden); Alert or Eureka (Canada); Barrow (USA); Cherskii or Tiksi (Russia); Ny-Ålesund (Norway); Pallas or Sodankylä (Finland), and Summit (Greenland). Papers addressing Arctic climate change attribution (why things are changing), not just trends (how things are changing), are particularly desirable. Results from recent IPY Arctic experiments, analyses of long-term measurements, and satellite or model assessments using IASOA measurements are encouraged.
