Abstract text

The Horizon-2020 iCUPE (Integrative and Comprehensive Understanding on Polar Environments; https://www.atm.helsinki.fi/icupe) project will synthesize data from comprehensive long-term measurements, intensive campaigns and satellites, collected during the project or provided by on-going international initiatives; relate observed parameters to impacts; and deliver novel data products, metrics and indicators concerning the environmental status, availability and extraction of natural resources in the polar areas. The obtained results will be useful for policy development, improving and clearly communicating multidisciplinary understanding future status of the polar environment and pollution dynamics.The project will deliver a series of datasets-products (DS) for potentially interested researchers, decision and policy makers, stakeholders, end-users. Such publicly available DS can be used in different applications. Focusing on  the  Arctic region territories, these DS (https://www.atm.helsinki.fi/icupe/index.php/list-of-datasets-as-deliverables) will include data on anthropogenic contaminants in snow and ice cores; ground-based measurements for the particle number, black carbon mass, concentrations of ozone, atmospheric mercury, organic aerosols; emerging organic contaminants in the air-snow-water; aerosol vertical profiles from ground and satellite observations; precipitation, snow spectral reflectance, lakes’ changes; other Arctic parameters based on ground, remote sensing, and airborne platforms; novel proxy variables integrating in-situ and satellite data; novel optical remote sensing products on snow-vegetation, gas flaring mapping; near-real time parameters of the Arctic Research Infrastructures; others.Some of these datasets are focused on selected areas of the northern latitude regions, others - on selected geographical locations (measurement sites). Information about planned datasets is already available through the DS “teasers” with responsible contacts and expected results (details at https://www.atm.helsinki.fi/icupe/index.php/submitted-datasets).
