Science Summary:
This grant supports the attendance of 15 participants and administration of their travel to the Arctic Observing Network Design and Implementation (ADI) Workshop, to be held in Boulder, Colorado between June 27-29, 2012. The workshop is being convened to finalize a review of available network design information and specific case studies. Attendees will produce a document which is intended to synthesize the past three years? effort of the ADI Task Force and inform interested funding agencies currently supporting the Arctic Observing Network. The final document will be distributed by the end of July 2012.

Logistics Summary:
The ADI Task Force held a small three-day meeting on 27-29 June 2012 for 15 participants at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, Colorado to finalize the ADI Task Force Report. The final report is being developed to NSF, the broader scientific community, and others, and it will summarize recommendations for the next steps in optimizing, coordinating, and enhancing the existing components of an international arctic environmental observing system, with emphasis on the U.S. AON. The report is expected to be completed early fall 2012. The goals of the ADI Task Force writing workshop were to (1) jointly review the recently completed ADI Task Force community survey, (2) discuss and evaluate in the context of ADI two case studies that can provide further guidance on observing system design and implementation, and (3) synthesize and jointly review the available documentation and draft sections of the report that address the ADI goals, thereby allowing a small writing team to complete the report shortly after the workshop. No fieldwork is conducted.
