Arctic Field Programs
Arctic Summer Cloud Ocean Study
ASCOS was an international field experiment to better understand the atmospheric and chemical processes of how clouds affect the surface energy budget of the pack ice and its melting.
De-Icing Comparison Experiment
D-ICE is an experiment to test strategies developed by research institutes and industry for preventing radiometer icing.
International Chemistry Experiment in the Arctic LOwer Troposphere
ICEALOT was a springtime study of aerosol properties and atmospheric chemistry over an ice-free region of the Arctic.
Integrated Characterization of Energy, Clouds, Atmospheric State
ICECAPS is a study to better understand how cloud and atmospheric processes contribute to recent warming and melting in the Arctic. Focus is on clouds, precipitation, and atmospheric structure, all of which are poorly understood over the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean
SHEBA was a National Science Foundation program designed to study Arctic atmospheric, sea-ice and ocean processes through a full annual cycle.
