D2.10 Synthesis of gap analysis and exploitation of the existing Arctic observing systems

A synthesis of the substantial assessment of Arctic observations within INTAROS. Since the assessed systems mainly belong to the European partners in the project, the assessment is unavoidably biased towards the European sector of the Arctic. The detailed results of the assessment can be found in previous deliverables (D2.1, D2.2, D2.4, D2.5, D2.7, D2.8 and D2.12). Also some higher-level...

D2.11 Report on the maturity of existing observing systems in the Arctic

The main effort has been to collect important metadata about each of the observing systems by many of the project partners as well as third parties using a standardised set of questionnaires. Questions asked included, but were not limited to, reflections on observing system management. The replies to the questions provide valuable indicators of the observing system maturity following...

D2.12 Observational gaps revealed by model sensitivity to obser-vations

To understand the quality of the existing observing system in the Arctic to capture important elements of change over the Arctic we performed a gap analysis with respect to the Arctic Ocean, the Arctic atmosphere and the high-latitude carbon-monitoring network. The main points of the findings are:
1) The ocean observing system: The satellite altimeter system is a critical system to...

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...

D2.3 Catalogue of products and services based on ocean and sea ice data

This document contains the description of the INTAROS online data catalogue, which includes data collections that were not previously available, and of the effort done in INTAROS to make selected in situ and satellite ocean and sea ice data collections accessible through existing repositories.

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...

D2.6 Catalogue of products and services based on atmospheric data

This document contains the description of the INTAROS online data catalogue, which includes data collections that were not previously available, and of the effort done in INTAROS to make selected in situ atmospheric data collections accessible through existing repositories.

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...
