a core project of

Radiosonde Observations for Arctic Data Assimilation Study Workshop

-- a CliC Science Planning workshop

Workshop Objective:

To discuss intensive radiosonde observations for data assimilation which are scheduled during September 2013 - leading to a better understanding of the uncertainty of the Arctic atmospheric circulation.

The special observing network which obtains 3- or 6-hourly radiosonde data will be established with the aid of Ny-Alesund and Tiksi stations, and R/V Mirai. These data will be used for observing system experiments.

This workshop is to help coordinate the observing strategy and a develop a future science plan. It is open for scientists who are interested in supporting and contributing to this experimental observing network.

Date, Time, and Location

18 April 2013, 14:00 - 16:00+
Conference Room of the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University, 33 Krupnicza Street, Kraków

The workshop is being held in conjunction with the Arctic Science Summit Week in Krakow, Poland from 13-19 April 2013. For more information on the conference, visit http://www.assw2013.us.edu.pl/
