More about SEARCH for DAMOCLES (S4D)

DAMOCLES is in partnership with the North-American SEARCH-program (Study of Environmental Arctic Change). The two programs share several scientific objectives including large-scale observations of the Arctic Ocean sea-ice cover and circulation and key atmospheric processes, integration and assimilation of observations with models, and assessment of environmental and human impacts. A website has been set up to explain the SEARCH for DAMOCLES (S4D) cooperation more in detail. (Jul 1, 2008)
