for the Virtual OCB Pre-Arctic COLORS Data Synthesis Community Meeting October 18-20, 2021, 1:00-4:00 PM EST

As NASA prepares for the large-scale Arctic-COLORS field campaign ( in the near future, it is imperative to identify and characterize the existing terrain datasets, modeling activities and remote sensing capabilities in the Arctic coastal region that make up the Arctic-COLORS study area. . To work toward these goals, a virtual community meeting open October 18-20, 2021, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, as a Pre-Arctic-COLORS Data Synthesis Activity , sponsored by NASA and the OCB Project Office.

We invite stakeholders from the Arctic-COLORS study region to participate in this community meeting to discuss and share information on past, current and planned measurement, modeling and remote sensing activities in the field. This virtual community meeting will bring together a multidisciplinary network of scientists conducting research on biogeochemical fluxes and exchanges along the Arctic aquatic continuum, from rivers to the coastal Arctic Ocean, to lay the foundation for available data, where the data is housed and who to involve to get them back. This synthesis activity is an important step towards developing the Arctic-COLORS implementation plan and, eventually, the Arctic-COLORS field campaign itself. We are very excited about the workshop and are working hard to make it an interactive experience. A draft agenda is available below and on the meeting webpage.

Register at:


October 18 (1 to 4 p.m. EST)
Day 1 will focus on an overview of this Arctic-COLORS wrap-up activity (goals and objectives, results, etc.) and presentations on relevant field measurements, including major field programs

October 19 (1 to 4 p.m. EST)
Day 2 will focus on modeling activities, with presentations highlighting key modeling activities

October 20 (1 to 4 p.m. EST)
Day 3 will focus on remote sensing, focusing on challenges, progress and needs in satellite and airborne remote sensing
