abstract ASCOS is a multi-month Arctic field experiment based on the Swedish icebreaker Oden, planned for the summer of 2008. The ultimate objective is to understand processes that are poorly described in current climate models, in order to reduce the large uncertainty in projections of future Arctic climate. ASCOS will improve our understanding of processes that control the evolution of clouds over the Arctic pack ice area, with an integrated study from the sea-ice interface to the cloud-topped boundary layer. The necessary interdisciplinary scientific approach will include marine biochemistry, aerosol and cloud chemistry/physics, and meteorology.ASCOS will concentrate on an ice-drift operation when Oden will be moored to an ice floe, starting near the North Pole and drifting passively during the biologically most active period and into autumn freeze-up conditions, roughly July through September. Ground-based remote sensing by NOAA/ETL and ARM (Mobile Unit) will provide continuous measurements of boundary-layer and cloud structure, while in-situ instruments and vertical profiling will provide detailed process-oriented information on boundary layer dynamics, atmospheric aerosol/cloud evolution and ocean/ice biochemistry. Instruments will be deployed both onboard Oden and on the ice. Detailed aerosol-cloud profiling will be conducted with instrument payloads deployed by helicopter from Oden. The aims of ASCOS are: * To determine the atmospheric processes that control boundary layer clouds north of 80 degrees N. * To determine the evolution of cloud condensation (CCN) and ice forming nuclei (IFN). * To determine the role of boundary-layer turbulence and surface properties for the exchange of heat, water, momentum and aerosols between the ocean/ice/air interface and with the troposphere. * To determine the role of marine biochemical processes for CCN and IFN formation, with emphasis on the open lead surface microlayer. * To test and implement reliable satellite algorithms for area-covering climate monitoring. * To provide a high-Arctic mirror-station of intense atmospheric measurements that for a limited time will sample data similar to monitoring stations around the rim of the Arctic Ocean, for example at Barrow and Alert/Eureka. * To contribute to the data archive over the central Arctic Ocean collected during IPY. * To provide a comprehensive data set on the high Arctic climate system, for developing and testing of integrated climate models.
