Dear Blue-Action colleagues,
We have been asked to circulate this request to all Blue-Action scientists by the project INTAROS.
This survey addresses Arctic in-situ observations of the ocean, atmosphere, terrestrial sphere and cryosphere, retrieved through established networks/observing systems as well as individual large projects.
Scope of the survey
To collect the information needed to assess the existing Arctic in-situ observing systems in terms of data delivery chain, accessibility, and spatial-temporal coverage.
Why is important?
The repository of the answers will enhance the visibility of the assessed data, and will facilitate data discovery for stakeholders and data users.

Please read carefully the definitions, scope and contents on this page before starting the survey.
We are pleased to announce the public opening of the INTAROS questionnaire to survey the characteristics of the existing in-situ Arctic observing systems (questionnaire A). National and international institutions, agencies, and projects that have been (or are still) collecting in situ observations from fixed or mobile, permanent or temporary platforms in the Arctic are invited to answer to the questionnaire. The received answers will integrate those provided by the INTAROS partners, will be placed in an open access repository, and will be used to assess the Arctic observing system and analyze its gaps. The assessment is in line with the assessments of climate data record and of measurement series done under the FP7 CORE-CLIMAX project and the H2020 GAIA-CLIM project, respectively. The repository of the answers will enhance the visibility of the assessed data, and will facilitate data discovery for stakeholders and data users.
