  Information - AS2.04 Boundary Layer and Chemical Processes in High Latitudes: Observations and Modeling

Event Information
This session is intended to provide an interdisciplinary forum to bring
together researchers working in the areas of high-latitude tropospheric
meteorology and chemistry with an emphasis on the role of boundary layer
processes. Boundary layers in high latitudes, including those over sea
ice, coastal areas, and the high terrain of Greenland and Antarctica,
present major challenges for weather and climate models including the
production of realistic reanalyses of past climate. This session will
focus on both observational studies and the translation of new
observational insights and parameterizations into the development and
verification of high-latitude numerical and conceptual models. With
recent evidence of the role of the surface energy budget on reductions
in Arctic sea ice, the interplay of chemistry (including aerosols),
clouds, radiation, and surface processes in the high latitudes presents
important scientific challenges. Similarly, with increasing interest in
observations of coastal change, particularly in the Arctic, papers are
also encouraged in reporting on the observation and analysis of coastal
boundary layer and chemical processes in the presence of
ocean-ice-land-terrain contrasts, particularly in the face of a changing
This session will be coordinated with the session in the Cryospheric
Program: ‘Snow dynamics and snow-atmosphere exchange over Greenland and
