Objectives of the ACE TRIM

Joe Casas, ACE Technical and Project Manager

trim objectives
TRIM Objectives
  • Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) 2013-2017 Arctic Research Plan
  • TRIM Purpose
  • Conduct of the TRIM
  • Agenda
the fy2013 2017 arctic research plan 1 of 2
The FY2013-2017 Arctic Research Plan(1 of 2)
  • Represents call to action for 13 Federal agencies, departments, and offices
  • To help address some of these Arctic challenges and opportunities, the U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC)
  • Plan provides a blueprint for effective Federal coordination of Arctic research for the next half-decade to help maintain a U.S. focus on Arctic stewardship for many years to come
  • Because the Arctic is geographically remote and environmentally harsh, advancing regional knowledge and understanding requires specialized research platforms, instruments and cyberinfrastructure
  • National policy for Arctic research consists of seven overlapping research areas:
    • 1. Sea ice and marine ecosystems
    • 2. Terrestrial ice and ecosystems
    • 3. Atmospheric studies of surface heat, energy, and mass balances
    • 4. Observing systems
    • 5. Regional climate models
    • 6. Adaptation tools for sustaining communities
    • 7. Human health
  • Each of the appropriate Federal organizations must identify and commit with existing activities or create new activities to contribute directly to accomplishing specific aspects of the 2013-2017 Arctic Research Plan for the research areas and infrastructure
the fy2013 2017 arctic research plan 2 of 2
The FY2013-2017 Arctic Research Plan(2 of 2)
  • Chapter 3.0 Research Areas
    • 3.1 Understand sea-ice processes, ecosystem processes, ecosystem services, and climate feedbacks in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas and the contiguous Arctic Ocean
    • 3.2 Understand terrestrial ice processes, ecosystem processes, ecosystem services,and climate feedbacks in the Arctic
    • 3.3 Understand atmospheric surface heat, energy, and mass balances
    • 3.4 Integrate and continue to deploy a national Arctic observing system and promote international cooperation to create a circumpolar observing system 3.5 Integrate Arctic regional models
    • 3.6 Assess strengths and vulnerabilities of Arctic communities to impacts of climate change and develop adaptation strategies and tools to maximize sustainability, well-being, and cultural and linguistic heritage
    • 3.7 Understand factors that affect human health in the Arctic, including infectiousand non-communicable diseases, environmental contamination, climate change, and behavioral and mental health disorders
  • Chapter 4.0 Research Infrastructure
    • Table 1 summarizes major infrastructure, including space- and ocean-based assets, aircraft (piloted and unpiloted), and field stations
    • Table 2 summarizes significant but smaller research tools, with a focus on airborne and ocean-based infrastructure
    • Table 3 summarizes key assets of cyberinfrastructure that are important for research and education in the Arctic
      • The Arctic Collaborative Environment (ACE) tool was identified in this Arctic Research Plan as potentially offering a research virtual network cyberinfrastructure capability
        • for use in facilitating online communication, collaboration and scientific discovery among researchers with an emphasis on Web-based visualization, analysis and interpretation of diverse datasets and information
trim purpose
TRIM Purpose
  • Provide interactive training on ACE
  • Explore potential use of ACE in field research, modeling, and educational activities
  • Identify operational and technical issues for future resolution
  • Identify new capabilities for future extension
conduct of the trim
Conduct of the TRIM
  • Consists of five sessions:
    • Introduction and Training
    • Example Research Scenarios
    • Educational Applications
    • Introduction to NOAA ERMA®
    • Discussion of improvements and partnerships
  • All sessions are fully interactive
    • If you have a question, ask it, don’t wait for the end
    • If you are having computer problems, let us know right away and we will assist
    • If you have a suggestion, please share it
