IASOA Vision

Bringing IASOA datasets and experts together in a sustainedscience collaboration to develop a pan-Arctic understanding of both how and why the Arctic is changing. “While many countries have their own capabilities, to provide a complete global data set, there is a need to develop an intelligently integrated and consistent system for observing, with transparency relative to aspects such as calibration, algorithms, and data utilization.” (NSF, GEO 2012)

IASOA Structure

Important to emphasize that observatories are independently funded –

slide7

IASOA Strategy

IASOA’s role is to identify & develop targets for integration

in 2013 iasoa developed a wg structure
In 2013, IASOA developed a WG structure –

Net Radiation

Regional Prediction

Black Carbon

Clouds

Methane, Trace Gases

Atmosphere-Surface Coupling

IASOA WG Charge

The mission of IASOA is to advance coordinated research objectives from independent pan-Arctic atmospheric observatories through:

strategically developing comprehensive observational capacity,

facilitating data access and usability through a single gateway, and

mobilizing contributions to synergistic science and socially-relevant services derived from IASOA assets and expertise.

slide10

Implementing this Charge

Iterative cycle of expanding observations; improving data fitness; bringing together experts; motivating them with publications. What we’d like to do more: Work directly with information stakeholders.

Net Radiation

Black Carbon

Identify datasets; error correction schemes; uncertainty estimates

Improve Network Fitness

Sharma et al. (2013); Key et al. (2013)
