CliC Workshop on Asian Cryospheric Data Products 2009


Meeting Report, Agenda and Participant list from the CliC Workshop on Asian Cryospheric Data Products, held in the Cold and Arid Regions Environmental and Engineering Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAREERI, CAS) in Lanzhou, China from 29-31 March 2009. WCRP Inf. No. 10/2009. January 2010.


Eighteen people from eight countries participated in the CliC Workshop on Asian Cryospheric Data Products held at the Cold and Arid Regions Environmental and Engineering Research Institute (CAREERI), CAS on March 29-31, 2009. Among the participants were Dr. Xin Li, director of World Data Center for Glaciology and Geocryology in Lanzhou, Dr. Tetsuo Ohata, member of the Japan CliC Committee, and Dr. Daqing Yang, Director of the CliC International Project Office. Dr. Tingjun Zhang from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), USA, contributed to the CliC workshop from preparation through implementation. The workshop was preceded by the 1st Asia Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Symposium: State and fate of Asian Cryosphere, which was held in Yokohama, Japan in 2006. The idea of organizing a data workshop to promote joint data activities in this region was initialized by Dr. Tetsuo Ohata, Dr. Tingjun Zhang and Dr. Xin li.

The workshop consisted of six sessions:

1. Open session

2. Snow data session

3. Glacier data session

4. Frozen ground data session

5. Data archive and management session

6. Summary session

Dr. Xin Li opened the workshop with a welcoming speech and an introduction of the workshop. Dr. Tetsuo Ohata, Dr. Daqing Yang, and Dr. Tingjun Zhang each gave a short talk during the opening session. Afterwards, the status of Asian snow data were reported by each country, followed by group discussions summarizing the current condition of snow data in each country.

The second day morning session focused on glacier data, while the afternoon session discussed frozen-ground data and mapping of frozen ground in Asia. Each session consisted of country reports and group discussions. A short summary session in the afternoon generated comments on several issues; such as, data catalogue, data archiving, organization of Asian cryospheric data working groups, and other issues.

On the last day, JAMSTEC and CAREERI introduced their own data-archive system and data-distribution platforms. The four chairmen then summarized the results from the Snow-, Glacier-, Frozen ground- and Data-archive and Management sessions. Planning which steps to take next was also discussed.

The atmosphere-ocean boundary layer in which sea ice resides includes many complex processes that require a more realistic treatment in GCMs, particularly as models move toward full earth system descriptions. The primary purpose of the workshop was to define and discuss such coupled processes...
