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.
In September 2011 Sarah Crowley joined the ARCUS staff as Education Project Manager. Sarah replaces Kristin Timm, who received a fellowship to pursue her graduate studies at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Selected from a highly competitive field of applicants, Sarah stood out as uniquely qualified for the position. She has a teaching career in experiential education, a graduate residency in environmental education, and for the past three years worked as a science educator at the Murie Science and Learning Center in Denali National Park and Preserve. While there she trained staff on park science and climate change programs and developed teacher-training courses integrating classroom teaching and polar science topics.
At ARCUS she will team with Janet Warburton in guiding the development and management of the PolarTREC program. We are fortunate to have Sarah's talents, energy, and intelligence as an addition to our already highly talented and efficient staff. I know you will enjoy interacting with her as much as we enjoy working with her. Welcome, Sarah!
