ESA-CliC Earth Observation and Arctic Science Priorities


The European Space Agency and the Climate and Cryosphere project are pleased to present the publication of “Earth Observation and Arctic Science Priorities”. This report resulted from several consultations with the cryosphere community including a workshop held in January at the Fram Centre in Tromsø, Norway. More information on the meeting, including presentations, can be found here:

The outcome of the meeting and its conclusions will contribute to guide scientific activities on Arctic research, including ESA’s programmatic priorities for the time frame 2017-2021. Despite not covering all components of the Arctic cryosphere, discussions covered a fairly large spectrum of research areas where EO may contribute.

We thank the workshop participants and many others in the cryosphere community who contributed substantially to this report.

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...
