The AON Design and Implementation (ADI) effort provides guidance to the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), the scientific community, and others engaged in arctic environmental observations on how to achieve a well-designed, effective, and robust arctic observing system.
ADI activities are overseen by an ADI Task Force and have included a combination of virtual and in-person meetings and a community survey. A final task force meeting was held late June 2012. The result of these recent Task Force efforts is a final report with recommendations for designing, optimizing, and implementing an Arctic Observing Network.
