Abstract

The primary purpose of developing ArORIS is to bring together satellite, reanalysis, and in situ measurements into a common framework to encourage a comprehensive approach for pinning down uncertainties related to climate change. The dataset is geared for long-term assessment and validation of satellite and reanalysis products, and satellite comparisons with global circulation models, scientific inquiry, and assessments of the Earth's radiation and moisture budgets. A few examples demonstrating the potential usefulness of this new dataset were presented in this article. The dataset will be updated periodically in order to include the most recent observations and advances in product development. The matched products listed in Table 1 are available for download and are approximately 7 GB in size. ArORIS is currently staged at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) CloudSat web page portal for data acquisition (www.cloudsat.cira.colostate.edu/community-products/arctic-observation-and-reanalysis-integrated-system) along with detailed product documentation.
