Number Name Description
D1.1 Initial Requirement Report

The detailed analysis of phenomena and observation requirements for the Arctic region given in this report reveals the following conclusions:
• The Arctic is a region very sensitive to environmental changes. There is a very close interrelation and delicate balance between the five thematic areas investigated (atmosphere, terrestrial, cryosphere, sea ice and ocean), especially in relation...

D1.2 Data Management Plan V1

This document is the first version of the Data Management Plan (DMP) for the INTAROS project. The DMP describes how new datasets collected or generated by partners in the frame of the project, will be managed according to guidelines for FAIR data management in H2020. INTAROS will collect new observations and generate high-level data products from different
1. Atmosphere...

D1.3 Engagement strategy

The overall objective of INTAROS is to build an efficient integrated Arctic Observation System (iAOS) by extending, improving and unifying existing systems in the different regions of the Arctic. This requires engagement of a broad group of research institutions, educational institutions, operational agencies and stakeholder groups. This document
- describes how collaboration will be...

D2.1 Report on present observing capacities and gaps: ocean and sea ice observing system

A major goal of WP2: “Exploitation of existing observing systems” is to analyze strengths, weaknesses, gaps in spatial/temporal coverage, and missing monitoring parameters of the existing observation networks and databases in relation to the requirements from different user groups. This report is prepared to assess the existing ocean and sea ice observing systems in the Arctic, primary those...

D2.2 Report on exploitation of existing data: ocean and sea ice data

This report presents a selection of data products from existing ocean and sea ice measurements under WP2 Task 2.2 (Exploitation of existing data towards improved data products). This is done by applying various methodologies for data processing to derive of geophysical and biogeochemical quantities that can be used further work in the project, especially in WP5 (Data management and integration...

D2.4 Report on present observing capacities and gaps: Atmosphere

This document includes the description and assessment of atmospheric in situ observing systems, data collections and satellite products. On the basis of the assessment, critical knowledge gaps are identified and recommendations to solve them are provided. This document is intended to:
− define the current gaps in knowledge in atmospheric fields that are critical for operational weather...

D2.5 Report on exploitation of existing data: Atmosphere

This document describes the atmospheric data sets exploited in INTAROS WP2. These include in-situ particulate absorption, remote-sensing cloud products and total integrated water vapor from satellites. This document is intended to describe solely the data sets upgraded and the methodologies used. The requirements for the data collections and the assessment of the upgraded products are...

D2.7 Report on present observing capacities and gaps: Land and cryosphere

This document describes the critical knowledge gaps and suggests future research directions. This document is intended to:
− define the current gaps in knowledge in critical field investigating the impact of climate change on terrestrial and cryosphere systems
− suggest the direction that future studies should undertake to address these gaps

D2.8 Report on exploitation of existing data: Land and cryosphere

This report presents higher-level products from existing terrestrial and cryosphere measurements, developed within INTAROS WP2 by applying new methodologies for data processing and derivation of new quantities. The report presents both satellite-derived products and products from in situ observing systems within the terrestrial sphere and the cryosphere.

The exploited higher-level...

D4.1 Community based monitoring programmes in the Arctic: Capabilities, good practice and Challenges

Arctic people live in and observe the Arctic environment year-round. Intimate knowledge of the environment and environmental changes is fundamental to the survival of these people who frequently depend on natural resources for their livelihood. This report presents a review of the capabilities, good practices, opportunities and barriers of community-based environment monitoring programmes in...
