Abstract

Multitudes of measurements are needed to understand the environment and its evolution. The Arctic region is a fundamental observation area for climate change evaluation: climate change comes first and comes faster in the Arctic. The higher accuracy required to quickly capture trends; the extreme range and conditions of sensors exposure; a robust comparability asked by the different measurement networks; the need of dedicated calibration procedures, together with the logistical problems associated with such remote location, motivate the proposal for a joint effort to address metrology experience and activities for Arctic research applications. The Ny-Ålesund international research base and community offers a unique infrastructure to directly link metrological traceability to on site polar measurements. The contribution reports a study on the implementation of specific calibration procedures, metrological validation of measurements and instrument tests, uncertainties evaluations including quantities of influence, and the feasibility of a metrology laboratory in Ny-Ålesund.
