The fieldcampaign was completed in April 2009.

OASIS is organizing a major field effort at Barrow, Alaska during the winter/spring of 09 to pursue key big-picture science issues regarding air-surface chemical interactions in the Arctic, and their evolution in future climates.

Central to our campaign is the quantitative and reliable determination of chemical and biological fluxes to and from ice and snow surfaces, as a function of the nature of the surface and other relevant environmental conditions. This will be pursued using state-of-the-art chemical and biological sensors, as well as micrometeorological instrumentation, Lidars, and tethered balloons.
