TICFIRE Measurements in the Arctic 1 December 2016 to 1 May 2017
The North Slope of Alaska (NSA) atmospheric observatory is providing data about cloud and radiative processes at high latitudes. The observatory, known as a megasite, includes a central facility at Barrow and the third ARM Mobile Facility to the east at Oliktok Point.
The NSA is a focal point for atmospheric and ecological research activity in the Arctic. Scientists use data from the NSA to improve the representation of high-latitude cloud and radiation processes in earth system models.
