Abstract: The First Regional Observing Study of the Troposphere (FROST) is an intensive data collection and analysis program designed to investigate the performance of forecast models poleward of 50 degrees S latitude during three one-month periods: July, 1994; 15 October to 14 November, 1994; and January, 1995. The United States scientific community plans active involvement in all phases of FROST starting with a vigorous effort to compile a comprehensive set of atmospheric data and analyses for the FROST study area. The data will be collected at the University of Wisconsin's Antarctic Meteorological Research Center for dissemination to the international FROST data and analysis centers. The U.S. scientific community will also play a key role in analyzing the FROST data and determining the data's impact on current forecast models. Improving the understanding of the atmospheric dynamics over and around Antarctica and improving forecast skill are principal goals of both the international and U.S. FROST efforts. The data and scientific plans for the U.S. participation in FROST are outlined in this report.
