AGU Session C021 - Integrating Observations and Models to Better Understand a Changing Arctic System

Marika Holland

Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to AGU session "C021 - Integrating Observations and Models to Better Understand a Changing Arctic System". The abstract submission deadline is 31 July, 2019.

Session C021: Integrating Observations and Models to Better Understand a Changing Arctic System
The Arctic environment is changing at an unprecedented rate. There is a significant need to understand ongoing Arctic system change and predict its future behavior. Model studies play a fundamental role in these tasks as a tool for experimentation and prediction. However, progress in model development often suffers from a disconnect with discoveries made in the observational community. In turn, observational activities could make better use of model guidance regarding the relative importance of various processes and improved sampling strategies. This session welcomes presentations that integrate in situ observations and remote sensing data with Arctic modeling activities to enhance the understanding of the changing Arctic system. Examples of this integration include methods to use observations in model validation and improvement, observational network design that use models to guide observations, and data assimilation activities which combine models and observations to enhance understanding and prediction of the Arctic system. Studies addressing the atmosphere, ocean, sea ice, terrestrial systems and the coupling among them, including physical, biological and biogeochemical interactions are welcome.

See you in San Francisco!

Cheers,
