OASIS was created as a research program that integrates scientific issues of climate change related to interactions involving the Arctic Ocean, the overlying sea ice and associated/regional snowpack, and the atmosphere. The recently concluded International Polar Year (IPY) created special opportunities to address many of these issues through coordinated field studies that might otherwise have been impossible to envisage. Under the aegis of the IPY, OASIS teams investigated the physical and chemical processes occurring at the interface between the surface and boundary layer atmosphere in the polar regions. This session welcomes contributions from all recent OASIS-related studies, culminating in the OASIS-09 field campaign at Barrow, Alaska, February-April 2009.

The abstract submission deadline for this and all other sessions is Thursday, 3 September 2009, at 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time. To submit an abstract, you must enter the first author's current AGU member ID and password at: http://agu-fm09.abstractcentral.com/.
