IASOA Surface Flux Working Group Prospectus & Mtg Notes

Direct observations of the coupled Atmospheric-Terrestrial-Cryospheric System create overlapping interests among many activities.  The document  below was developed over the course of six months by multiple contributors who participated in a series of discussion to identify collaborative opportunities for Surface Flux observations across Arctic terrestrial locations and among and between atmspheric and terrestrial researchers and networks.  

The on-going meeting notes of this group are archvied below (scroll down). 

 

In order to understand the impact of the broad scale circulation on locally observed fluxes, careful comparisons must be made between the synoptic scale conditions, local topography and observed turbulence.
