Description of the experiment

Scientific objectives / Proposed work / Anticipated output Scientific objectives / Proposed work / Anticipated output

Abstract The overarching aims of this project will be to make the UK’s environmental prediction services for the polar regions world leading, through a better understanding of key physical processes and their improved representation within numerical weather and climate prediction systems. In so doing, improve environmental prediction globally via improved process representation and polar/mid-latitude linkages.

Science context A major (~3 week) detachment to Fairbanks, Alaska, during March 2018. Refuels in Barrow or Inuvik to get further north. Targets are snow emissivity in conjunction with satellite overpasses and ground-based measurements of snow properties over land and sea ice; BL and surface exchange processes over sea-ice and the marginal-ice-zone; clouds, aerosols and radiative impacts on energy balance; orographic flows and gravity waves from the Brooks or Alaska mountain ranges;

Weather constraints Weather conditions: Clear air at low level

Flights (number and patterns) Flights (number and patterns): 50 hours science
