NACP Interim Synthesis Activities

NACP Investigators have organized several interim synthesis activities to evaluate and intercompare models and observations at local and regional scales for the period 2000 - 2005. These activities are open to all investigators who have data or model results for North America.

Five interim synthesis activities are being conducted:

  1. Site-level Interim Synthesis
  2. Regional and Continental Interim Synthesis
  3. Mid-continent Intensive Interim Synthesis
  4. Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases
  5. Coastal Interim Synthesis
