Fellow Federation Members:
I'd like you all to be aware of the following session at AGU this December.
We have proposed a Cryosphere Session at the Fall AGU that has a dual
First and foremost it is for scientists to present results of their
work, and second to (unofficially) acknowledge the contributions of
Dr. Roger G. Barry to Cryospheric Science and Data Management. While
AGU does not permit sessions in the name of an individual we would
like those interested to consider submission of a paper that is
linked to Roger's work, or your collaboration with him.
Please consider submitting an abstract to Cryosphere Section C02
titled: Progress in Understanding of Atmosphere-Cryosphere
Interactions in Polar Regions -- The Role of Data Management and Archives.
Climate Observations in Polar Regions have been characterized as the
'Canary in the Coal Mine' for detection of the onset of climate
change. The primary reason is that there are a variety of positive
feedbacks between the atmosphere and the cryosphere that enhance any
change or variability in the signal. Integration of long time-series
of climate data with remotely sensed observations of sea ice, snow
cover, lake and river ice, glaciers and permafrost is critical to
understanding the processes of these feedbacks. Data Archives, such
as the National Snow and Ice Data Center in CIRES at the University
of Colorado, Boulder, under the direction of Dr. Roger Barry since
its inception 25 years ago, have played pivotal roles in providing
the required confident, coherent and consistent data sets.
Consult the AGU meeting website
(<http://www.agu.org/>http://www.agu.org) for details on the session
and directions for submitting an abstract.
