Arctic Observing eXperiment (AOX)
1 April 2017 - 31 March 2018
Lead Scientist: Ignatius Rigor
Our ability to understand and predict weather and climate requires an accurate observing network. One of the pillars of this network is the observation of the fundamental meteorological parameters: temperature, air pressure, and wind. We have been assessing our ability to measure these parameters for the Polar Regions during the Arctic Observing Experiment (AOX) at the DOE/ARM NSA site to support the International Arctic Buoy Programme (IABP), the Arctic Observing Network (AON), the International Program for Antarctic Buoys (IPAB), and the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS).
