 The current status of Arctic sea ice

Session "The role of Aerosols in the Climate-Cryosphere System"

Session A46 on "The Role of Aerosols in the Climate-Cryosphere System"  at the Fall AGU Meeting, San Francisco, USA. 

The Arctic is undergoing dramatic change including sea ice loss occurring at rates greater than anticipated, temperature increases above global means, and retreating glaciers. The role of aerosols in these changes is uncertain. In addition, the 'opening' of the Arctic, and subsequent increases in resource extraction, development, and recreation carries unknown consequences. This session welcomes presentations related to the impact of atmospheric aerosols on Arctic climate including but not limited to sources and transport of aerosols to the Arctic, deposition processes, and aerosol radiative forcing. Highlights from national and international experiments, year-round station based measurements, and modeling studies are encouraged.

Topics will be
- modeling transport of BC to the Arctic and comparisons to measurements
- deposition processes and rates in snow and ice
- soot/light absorbing aerosol content in snow and ice and resulting radiative forcing
- detecting surface albedo changes due to deposited BC
The abstract deadline is August 4th.

Conveners: Tim Bates, John Burkhart, Andreas Herber, and Trish Quinn
