Arctic Research Support and Logistics: Strategies and Recommendations for System-scale Studies in a Changing Environment

2003 Arctic Logistics Report2003 Arctic Logistics Report

An updated arctic logistics report, Arctic Research Support and Logistics: Strategies and Recommendations for System-scale Studies in a Changing Environment, is now available for download. This document updates Logistics Recommendations for an Improved U.S. Arctic Research Capability, published in 1997. The National Science Foundation sponsored ARCUS to produce this update, which summarizes the progress made in improving research support since 1997 and responds to changing needs for arctic logistics and research support since the earlier report was published.

The recommendations were developed by the members of the Research Support and Logistics Working Group, co-chaired by Peter Schlosser of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Terry Tucker of Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. Members of the working group represented and gathered information from the broader arctic research community, which also articulated its research support needs directly, through survey responses, discussions at meetings and workshops, and comments on a previous draft of this report. The working group thanks all those who contributed to this process.

The working group intends this report to be used by all federal agencies with interests in the Arctic, as well as by Congress, in helping to develop and improve arctic research support. As a living document, the report will require future updates as research priorities change and logistics and research support assets continue to improve.
