WP1 - The integrated atmosphere-hydrosphere-cryosphere system

WP1 - THE INTEGRATED ATMOSPHERE-HYDROSPHERE-CRYOSPHERE SYSTEM

Task 1.1 - Radiation and energy budgets and fluxes of mass, heat and momentum at the air-snow-ground interface

Specific activities
Radiation energy budgets, Arctic ABL dynamics, role of clouds, water vapor, aerosols and albedo, influence of the chemical composition on the radiative balance in the strato-mesosphere, development of parameterizations for climate models at the regional scale.

Institution: CNR (CNR-ISAC, CNR-IIA, CNR-IBAF, CNR-IDPA) - INGV

Expected results
    - Meteo-climate peculiarities of Kongsfjorden, in particular in periods of seasonal transition: characterization, cataloguing.
    - Parameterization of the exchange processes between the surface and the atmosphere, especially in reference to radiation and energy budgets.
    - Integration of information and data acquired from the scientific platforms in the information system.
    - Construction of the catalogue of measures.

Task 1.2 – Oceanographic observations and processes at atmosphere-hydrosphere-cryosphere interfaces

Specific activities
Circulation, dispersion and sedimentation processes, ocean exchanges, at airsea fluxes in the fjord reconstruction of recent history by sedimentary deposits (100-200 years).

Institution: CNR - (CNR-ISMAR, CNR-ISAC, CNR-IAMC, CNR-ISSIA)

Expected results
    - Hydrological survey and oceanographic observing site maintenance.
    - Water and carbon fluxes at the interfaces of the Kongsfjorden.
    - Map of the thicknesses of modern sediment in the inner fjord.
