Atmosphere-Surface Exchanges

Investigating the regional variability of atmosphere-surface exchanges with in situ observations

The Atmosphere-surface exchanges group will form during the winter 2013-2014. The science questions that will guide this group are evolving.

See what datasets are available to investigate atmosphere-surface exchanges from Arctic observatories.

Presentation from Cryosphere-Atmosphere meeting in Davos, July 2013

The IASOA atmosphere-surface exchange working group collaborates directly with the WMO's Global Cryosphere watch on issues of common interest.

NOAA ESRL is conducting research into techniques to extend the performance of critical observational instruments into extreme cold locations.
