Title: Climate and Environmental Sciences Division, North Slope of Alaska Priorities Workshop, September 10–12, 2014

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) within the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), is hosting a series of workshops to solicit community feedback on how key scientific needs, gaps, and priorities in process model understanding and climate model prediction could be addressed through strategic deployment and operation of instruments and routine high resolution modeling. In particular, the use of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility—a DOE Office of Science user facility— is being reconfigured to better support the integration of observations and high-resolution modeling and to address these types of emerging science questions. As part of ARM’s reconfiguration, instruments are being concentrated to produce denser observational capabilities at fewer sites. In September 2014, the North Slope of Alaska (NSA) Priorities Workshop was held to obtain scientific input on priorities for observational and scientific research activities related to atmospheric processes in the North Slope region and to identify gaps or needs that limit the ability of the research community to address these scientific priorities. Topics of discussion included capabilities at the existing ARM NSA facilities in Barrow and Oliktok Point, additional observations that may supplement and/or link these facilities (e.g., aircraft,more » unmanned aerial systems, tethered balloons, scanning radar systems, surface stations), and modeling activities.« less
