The Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Science Definition Team has completed the ABoVE Concise Experiment Plan. This report refines the science questions and rationale for ABoVE, poses a next tier of science questions, and lays out a top-level study design. The study design defines the ABoVE study domain and research areas, identifies the types of studies and observations needed to address the ABoVE science questions, and provides guidance for study implementation.
