4. Fall 2013 Issue of IASOA Observations Available
International Arctic Systems for Observing the Atmosphere

The International Arctic Systems for Observing the Atmosphere (IASOA)
announces the availability of the Fall 2013 issue of their newsletter,
'IASOA Observations.' It is available at:
http://tinyurl.com/IASOA-News-Fall-2013.

IASOA was initiated as an International Polar Year (IPY) project to
address key atmospheric science questions through coordinating
atmospheric observing assets at nine pan-arctic observatories. Its
mission is to advance coordinated research objectives from independent
pan-arctic atmospheric observatories.

The Newsletter is intended to provide activity updates at the key arctic
observatories, feature science developments at individual observatories
or highlight cross-site science, provide updates on the IASOA data
portal, and provide insights into ground-based observations at
high-latitudes. Contributions from interested parties are welcome.
