1. Arctic Sciences Information Security Newsletter Available
Second Issue
Division of Arctic Sciences
National Science Foundation

The Arctic Sciences Information Security Newsletter second issue is now
available online.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Division of Arctic Sciences is
implementing an Information Technology (IT) security and risk management
program for NSF-provided IT infrastructure and services to the Arctic
Sciences Program. This initiative is designed to protect the
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information supporting
and generated by scientific research and empower well-informed risk
management decisions.

The Arctic Sciences Information Security Newsletter is published to help
make the arctic research and support communities aware of efforts to
manage risks to the IT infrastructure. Highlights in this issue include
introduction to IT providers, PC and MAC health and maintenance tips,
information on how to protect and encrypt sensitive emails, and IT
planning tips for researchers.

Both the current and first issues of the newsletter are available under
the 'Information Security' heading on NSF's Arctic Research Support and
Logistics webpage: http://www.nsf.gov/od/opp/arctic/res_log_sup.jsp.

The current issue may be downloaded directly, at:

4. Publication Available
ERICON Science Perspective 2015-2030
Aurora Borealis Project
European Research Icebreaker Consortium

The European Research Icebreaker Consortium (ERICON) announces
publication of the "Scientific Research in Polar Seas: ERICON Science
Perspective 2015-2030." The document was developed by the international
polar research community and is now available online.

The philosophy of this Science Perspective of the ERICON project is to
explicitly acknowledge the importance of carrying out research in the
Central Arctic Ocean and Antarctic ice-infested waters throughout the
entire year. The Science Perspective is not intended to cover in detail
all the research that can be carried out in polar regions. Instead, it
tries to identify the outstanding scientific questions most relevant to
current changes. This Science Perspective aims to provide a basis for
future scientific investigations of polar regions and define a "decadal"
strategy for European cooperation in polar science.

The ERICON Science Perspective 2015-2030 is based on the deliberations
of two scientific panels within two workshops convened in Strasburg
during 2010 and Vienna during 2011.
