Support of the Collection of Meteorological Data on the North Slope and Beaufort Sea, Alaska (AK-06-x13)

The data and analysis from the collection of these meteorological data is invaluable to ongoing BOEM scientific studies. These data are presently being used to validate the output from the Beaufort Sea Mesoscale Meteorological Model, currently under development by the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Other uses of the data would be testing of oceanographic and oil-spill trajectory models to assist in BOEM management in the Beaufort Sea region; to assist with the validation of surface current measurements collected by high frequency radar and subsurface currents collected by Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP); BOEM field operations studies, and air quality measurements from offshore operations.
