SHEBA Field Campaign
Large Scale Observations
SHEBA is a coordinated project to investigate the role of arctic climate in global change. The primary goals of SHEBA are:
- To determine the ocean-ice-atmosphere processes that control the surface albedo and cloud-radiation feedback mechanisms over arctic pack ice, and to use this information to demonstrably improve models of arctic ocean-atmosphere-ice interactive processes,
- To develop and implement models that improve the simulation of the present day arctic climate, including its variability, utilizing coupled global climate models
This case study presents data from 1 May 1998 to 31 July 1998 and covers a region from 65N to 90N latitude and from 180W to 120W longitude.
