Atmospheric Research in Ny-Aalesund. Proceedings from the Third NySMAC meeting. NILU, Kjeller, Norway, 9.-11. April 1997

Abstract

Leading abstract. The Ny-Aalesund Seminar Series was conceived by NySMAC (Ny-Aalesund Science Managers Committee) as a means of bringing together research scientists involved in programmes running at Ny-Aalesund or having an interest in that area. The first Seminar was held in Potsdam in Germany in May 1995, and included talks which covered all current research disciplines; physical, atmospheric, earth and biological sciences. The Second Seminar was devoted to biological science and particularly to ecology. It was held in Cambridge in UK in February 1996. The subject of this Third Seminar, held in Kjeller in Norway in April 1997, is atmospheric research in Ny-Aalesund. Since the early 1980s a wide range of projects have been carried out on Svalbard and particularly at Ny-Aalesund. Prominent in this research have been several international research programmes with emphasis on topics of e.g. Arctic (Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme, AMAP), European (European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme, EMEP) or global (International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme, IGBP; World Climate Research Programme, WCRP) scales. Atmospheric observations have been carried out in Ny-Aalesund in Svalbard for several years. From the early 1980s, the long range transport of sulphur dioxide and sulphate aerosols leading to Arctic Haze, has been studied. As a  More>>

The Ny-Aalesund Seminar Series was conceived by NySMAC (Ny-Aalesund Science Managers Committee) as a means of bringing together research scientists involved in programmes running at Ny-Aalesund or having an interest in that area. The first Seminar was held in Potsdam in Germany in May 1995, and included talks which covered all current research disciplines; physical, atmospheric, earth and biological sciences. The Second Seminar was devoted to biological science and particularly to ecology. It was held in Cambridge in UK in February 1996. The subject of this Third Seminar, held in Kjeller in Norway in April 1997, is atmospheric research in Ny-Aalesund. Since the early 1980s a wide range of projects have been carried out on Svalbard and particularly at Ny-Aalesund. Prominent in this research have been several international research programmes with emphasis on topics of e.g. Arctic (Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme, AMAP), European (European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme, EMEP) or global (International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme, IGBP; World Climate Research Programme, WCRP) scales. Atmospheric observations have been carried out in Ny-Aalesund in Svalbard for several years. From the early 1980s, the long range transport of sulphur dioxide and sulphate aerosols leading to Arctic Haze, has been studied. As a consequence, EMEP included Ny-Aalesund in their network. In the following years the transport of ozone and chemical precursors were observed, and recently the naturally occurring phenomenon of rapid surface ozone loss has been given particular attention. From the late 1980s observations of the stratospheric ozone layer and related chemical species were undertaken, and the efforts have increased considerably since. Ny-Aalesund is now one of the primary Arctic sites of the NDSC (Network for Detection of Stratospheric Change) network. Important efforts have been undertaken to participate in the European campaigns as the European Stratospheric Ozone Experiment (EASOE) and the Second European Stratospheric Arctic and Mid-latitude Experiment (SESAME) which were focused on the changing ozone layer. Observations are now also directed towards the climate change issue, with measurements of CO{sub 2} and other climate gases as a key activity. Ny-Aalesund is a remote background atmospheric research station, with only minor influences from local sources. Several institutions are now present in Ny-Aalesund with long term measurement programmes, including groups from Germany, Japan, Sweden, Italy and Norway. The observations are connected to several international research projects and programmes, as e.g. IGBP and WCRP programmes. Ny-Aalesund is also included in the WMO network, Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW). The increasing activity in atmospheric observations in Ny-Aalesund calls for extended exchange of information between scientists in order to stimulate the scientific discussion and interaction. Therefore, presentation of scientific results obtained in Ny-Aalesund, which can stimulate further scientific development, is the main objective of the seminar. There is a wealth of information and results available from atmospheric research in Ny-Aalesund. A second objective is to bring this to the attention of the scientific community, so that observations in Ny-Aalesund can be used in new contexts, e.g. in comparative studies involving observations from other locations or in modelling studies. Furthermore, the seminar will enable discussions to strengthen the collaboration between researchers which is also necessary in order to avoid duplication of efforts. The Third Seminar therefore provides an opportunity for those who have been working in the field of atmospheric research at Ny-Aalesund and in other areas of Svalbard to summarise their research and findings and to identify their achievements. During the discussions we also hope that participants will identify what they consider the new challenges to be, so that we can set out ideas from which new programmes can be developed. However, if we are to propose new programmes these need to fit into both a national and international context. Besides meeting national criteria, research programmes have to fit into the international context. Arctic science is by its nature international both in concept and in practice. (author)}
