Register now for the virtual OCB pre-Arctic COLORS Data Synthesis Community Meeting October 18-20, 2021, 1:00-4:00 pm eastern time
As NASA prepares for the Arctic-COLORS large-scale field campaign (https://arctic-colors.gsfc.
We invite stakeholders of the Arctic-COLORS study region to participate in this community meeting to discuss and share information on past, current, and planned field measurement, modeling, and remote sensing activities. This virtual Community Meeting will bring together a multidisciplinary network of scientists conducting research on biogeochemical fluxes and exchanges along the Arctic aquatic continuum, from rivers to the coastal Arctic Ocean, to lay the groundwork for what data are available, where data are hosted, and who to involve in retrieving them. This synthesis activity is an important stepping-stone toward the development of the Arctic-COLORS Implementation Plan and eventually the Arctic-COLORS field campaign itself. We are very excited about the workshop and are working hard to make it an interactive experience. A draft agenda is available below and on the meeting webpage.
October 18 (1-4 pm eastern time)
Day 1 will focus on overview of this Arctic-COLORS synthesis activity (goals and objectives, outcomes, etc.) and presentations on relevant field measurements, including large field programs
October 19 (1-4 pm eastern time)
Day 2 will focus on modeling activities, with presentations highlighting major modeling activities
October 20 (1-4 pm eastern time)
Day 3 will focus on remote sensing, focusing on challenges, progress, and needs on satellite and airborne remote sensing
