IASOA objectives for this task fall into 3 categories: planning, partnering and implementing.
IASOA planning objectives include the development of a science plan, strategic plan and implementation plan. These are foundational tasks on the path towards developing targeted synthesis and assessment science data products.
IASOA partnering objectives include integrating with relevant organizations and contributing to relevant activities within the IASOA boundaries of Arctic atmospheric (and atmosphere-surface flux), sustained, ground-based observing.
IASOA implementation objectives include: a) developing synthesis and assessment science deliverables from IASOA observations; b) sustaining and enhancing the IASOA data portal (http://iasoa.org); c) enhancing the network of observations to expand the potential for science deliverables.
