New Article Highlights Challenges of Research in the High Latitudes



The article, "High-Latitude Ocean and Sea Ice Surface Fluxes: Challenges for Climate Research" was published in the March Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) issue and is now available online

Three scientists funded through the NOAA Climate Program Office Climate Observation Division—Mark Bourassa (Florida State University), Meghan Cronin (NOAA PMEL), and Chris Fairall (NOAA ESRL)—are co-authors of the paper.

The article highlights the challenges of work focusing on high latitudes in that "High latitudes present extreme conditions for the measurement and estimation of air-sea and ice fluxes, limiting understanding of related physical processes and feedbacks that are important elements of the Earth's climate."
