The Arctic Observing, Modeling, and Terrestrial Ecosystems Collaboration
Teams of the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) are
hosting a webinar about the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiment (NGEE).
The webinar will be held Thursday, 22 May 2014 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT.

Characterized by vast amounts of carbon stored in permafrost and a
rapidly evolving landscape, the Arctic has emerged as a focal point for
the study of climate change. The NGEE Arctic project, sponsored by the
Department of Energy, Office of Science, is planned as a 10-year effort
to deliver a process-rich model of terrestrial ecosystems in which the
evolution of Arctic landscapes in a changing climate can be modeled at
the scale of a high resolution Earth System Model grid cell. Initial
research is focused on the North Slope of Alaska where thaw lakes,
drained thaw lake basins, and polygonal tundra offer distinct land units
for field and laboratory investigation and multi-scale modeling. This
project was launched from an understanding of decades of ecosystem and
climate change studies conducted by federal and state agencies in Alaska
and throughout the pan-Arctic.

During this webinar NGEE Arctic scientists will present a series of
talks that highlight critical aspects of the project and how a close
coupling between process studies and modeling can inform and advance
research in this area. Opportunities to collaborate through investments
by other state and Federal agencies will also be discussed.
