Dear Colleague:

The report, Logistics Recommendations for an Improved U.S. Arctic Research Capability is now available from the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS). The document emphasizes the importance of a strong U.S. arctic logistics capability to enhance and expand current U.S. arctic research and addresses both general and specific arctic logistics needs. It contains recommendations developed through a broad survey of the U.S. academic arctic research community regarding the logistics needed to improve the capability and safety of the U.S. arctic research program.

The report is envisioned to be a 'living' document that we hope will be updated regularly according to the changing logistical needs of future arctic science projects. The contributions to this report from the arctic research community and the logistics working group have been an important part of its successful development. The development and publication of the report were funded by the U.S. Arctic Research Commission and the National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs Arctic Science Section through the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS).
