Workshop: Developing Arctic Observing Systems


Norway has many institutions involved in various aspects of developing Arctic observation systems in many scientific disciplines. SIOS is a major effort to develop such system with focus on the Svalbard region. The EU INTAROS project aims to develop Pan-Arctic observing systems based on ongoing efforts by European, North American and Asian countries. INTAROS is therefore working in close collaboration with other international and national initiatives to develop and implement long-term observing systems in the Arctic, including Arctic Data Committee and Committee on Observations and Networks under SAON.


In this workshop Norwegian institutions are invited to discuss status and evolution of Arctic observing systems for the thematic areas described above. The workshop will focus on the upstream part of the data production chain, addressing platforms, sensors, data collection and data products (data production). The downstream activities related to data dissemination, exploitation and distribution through networks (data dissemination) will be the focus of follow-up workshops in 2018.
