The Meteorology of the Arctic Front Over Alaska

Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Alaska 99775
National Weather Service Forecast Office, Fairbanks, Alaska 99775


A joint research project between the Geophysical Institute and the Forecast Office of the National Weather Service in Fairbanks has studied the Arctic front over Alaska. This project has involved very close and useful cooperation between the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the National Weather Service Forecasting Office in Fairbanks. Techniques developed jointly have been applied to real forecasting problems. These contacts between UAF and NWS have also helped in the establishment of a new NOAA-University of Alaska Cooperative Institute, the Cooperative Institute for Arctic Research (CIFAR.)
