--------------------
The Administration’s National Science and Technology Council released a
five-year Arctic Research Plan that outlines key areas of study the
Federal government will undertake to better understand and predict
environmental changes in the Arctic. The report is available for
download by clicking on the ‘Arctic Research Plan FY2013 - FY2017’ link
at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ostp/nstc/docsreports.

The Plan was developed by a team of experts representing 14 Federal
agencies, based on input from collaborators including the Alaska
Governor’s Office, indigenous arctic communities, local organizations,
and universities. Seven research areas are highlighted in the Plan as
both important to the development of national policies and well-poised
to benefit from interagency collaboration, including among them:
regional climate models, human health studies, and adaptation tools for
communities.

The research plan does not encompass all Federal arctic research
activities that will occur over the next five years. It does, however,
provide a roadmap for unprecedented collaboration between agencies on
high impact research activities that will provide a solid scientific
basis for on-the-ground progress in the Arctic. It also complements a
number of steps being taken by the Administration to enable data-driven
and science-based stewardship in the arctic region, including the recent
launch of regionally-focused data communities on http://ocean.data.gov.
