ARCSS Program | Science Plan
the 1998 ARCSS Plan
in PDF format (size: approx. 1 MB).
The new science plan for the NSF Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Program Toward Prediction of the Arctic System: predicting future states of the arctic system on seasonal-to-century time scales by integrating observations, process research, modeling, and assessment is now available from the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS).
This plan examines the progress made in the last eight years, reviews significant research findings from each of the major programs of ARCSS, provides a basis for increased integration and synthesis, and begins to define the questions and research priorities that now arise based on increased understanding of the arctic system.
Copies of "Toward Prediction of the Arctic System" are available from ARCUS. Contact ARCUS at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the ARCSS Program check the NSF Web site or the ARCSS pages on this Web site.
