ArcticRIMS: A Regional, Integrated Hydrological Monitoring System for the Pan-Arctic Landmass
Entry ID: ARCSS161

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Arctic Rapid Integrated Monitoring System (ArcticRIMS) uses products from numerical weather prediction models (NCEP/NCAR, ERA-40, station records, satellite remote sensing, and other data sets) in conjunction with an atmosphere-land surface water budgeting scheme. The geography and dynamics of water across the pan-Arctic region are important elements of the larger Earth system especially given ... View entire text
