Witness the Arctic provides information on current arctic research efforts and findings, significant research initiatives, national policy affecting arctic research, international activities, and profiles of institutions with major arctic research efforts. Witness serves an audience of arctic scientists, educators, agency personnel, and policy makers. Witness was published biannually in hardcopy from 1995-2008 (archives are available below) and is currently published online 3-4 times annually, depending on newsworthy events.
With the Spring 2009 issue, ARCUS changed the format of Witness the Arctic. To provide more frequent updates and reduce printing and mailing costs and associated environmental impacts, the newsletter is now distributed online in three or four shorter issues per year, depending on newsworthy events.
ARCUS is pleased to announce the appointment of Jonathan W. Pundsack as Program Manager, effective 1 January 2011. In this position he will assume responsibility for ARCUS projects and activities, primarily within the Arctic Science System Program (ARCSS), and for support for the Arctic Observing Network (AON) project within the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) program.
Prior to joining ARCUS, Mr. Pundsack served as Executive Director of the Arctic-CHAMP (Community-wide Hydrologic Analysis and Monitoring Program) Science Management Office, coordinating an interdisciplinary NSF-funded arctic hydrological research initiative. Additionally, he served as Program Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean for the NOAA Office of Global Programs, where he also served a year as the National Sea Grant John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellow.
Mr. Pundsack will receive his PhD from the University of New Hampshire Natural Resources and Earth Systems Science (NRESS) Program in spring 2011. His dissertation will address science policy related to arctic hydrology and climate change.
We are very fortunate to be able to bring a scholar of Jonathan Pundsack's background and experience into ARCUS. Jonathan's experience working as a liaison with NSF and the polar research community will further strengthen ARCUS' initiatives and goals.
