The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) invites input from
Arctic scientists on issues of field research support and logistics in
the Arctic through an online survey. The survey has ten questions and
should take no more than ten minutes to complete.

The results of the survey will help shape the agenda and final report of
a workshop this fall, funded by the National Science Foundation's (NSF)
Arctic Research Support and Logistics (RSL) program. ARCUS is conducting
this survey on behalf of the workshop Organizing Committee (see below
for a list of Organizing Committee members). The workshop and related
activities will develop recommendations for the next five years of
Arctic logistics research and support. For more information about the
workshop, please see the Witness the Arctic article at:

For the purposes of the survey, data issues (e.g. data sharing, access,
standardization, coordination) are not in the scope of topics, as those
issues are substantial enough to warrant separate consideration.

Three randomly selected survey participants will win an umbrella
featuring a detailed bathymetric map of the Arctic Ocean. Contact
information must be provided in order to participate in the drawing;
otherwise survey participants may remain anonymous.

To take the survey, go to:

The survey will remain open until: Wednesday, 7 August 2013.
