Group: Summary

   The Environmental Working Group (EWG) was established in June 1995 under the 
   framework of the U.S.-Russian Joint Commission on Economic and Technological 
   Cooperation. In January 1996, the EWG Arctic Climatology Group took on the 
   task of compiling digital data on arctic regions to expand scientific 
   understanding of the Arctic. This work resulted in a set of three atlases on 
   CD-ROM for arctic oceanography, sea ice, and meteorology.

   The Arctic Meteorology and Climate Atlas was developed by specialists from the 
   Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), St. Petersburg, Russia, the 
   University of Washington, Seattle, and the National Snow and Ice Data Center, 
   University of Colorado, Boulder. The Atlas contains three main sections: a 
   history section, a 'Primer,' and a data section. The history section and 
   Primer provide background and introductory information for newcomers to arctic 
   meteorology, while the data section contains gridded fields of meteorological 
   parameters, and newly released meteorological station data from Russian and 
   other sources. In addition, the Atlas includes several English translations of 
   Russian technical documents, and a glossary of meteorological terms in English 
   and Russian.

   Users can download the CD-ROM from the NSIDC FTP site. NSIDC also distributes 
   the EWG Joint U.S.-Russian Atlas of the Arctic Ocean (Winter and Summer 
   periods), and the EWG Joint U.S.-Russian Arctic Sea Ice Atlas.
