U.S. CLIVAR Science Plan Public Review - Extended to 7/10

The U.S. CLIVAR Draft Science Plan is now available for public comment through July 10, 2013. The draft plan reflects input from U.S. CLIVAR scientists serving on its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC), three implementation panels, and members of the research community.  Through the open comment period, the SSC seeks comments on the draft plan by the broader U.S. and international science community and the public.  Review comments will be considered by the SSC in the final editing of the plan to be issued in late 2013.

High Latitude Surface Flux Working Group Publishes BAMS Article

The members of the U.S. CLIVAR High Latitude Surface Flux Working Group have published an article in the March 2013 edition of BAMS, "High-Latitude Ocean and Sea Ice Surface Fluxes: Challenges for Climate Research."  The paper describes the scientific requirements for surface fluxes at high latitudes and identifies how current flux products fail to meet these requirements.  The authors offer suggestions to improve high latitude flux estimates which includes a multidisciplinary approach with in-situ measurements and satellite remote sensing.
