The goal of the GAME-Siberia project is to clarify the characteristics and processes of water accumulation and transfer and their relation with the energy cycle, in the atmosphere-land surface interface of cold environments from the seasonal to the interannual time scale. This study will contribute to one of the primary GAME objectives
To understand multi-scale interactions in the energy and hydrologic cycles in the Asian Monsoon Region
and one scientific objective
To assess the impact of monsoon variability on the regional hydrologic cycle.
The objectives of tundra study subgroup include:
Develop seasonal and inter-annual variation of one-dimensional energy and water vapor fluxes over tundra.
Characterize the water balance components in these tundra watersheds.
Determine the areal distribution of ground surface properties.
