The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) invites participation in the virtual discussion, Intersection of Arctic Science and Policy. This web presentation will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.

Dr. Brendan Kelly, SEARCH Executive Director, will present a short history of Arctic research policy—from the Arctic Research and Policy Act of 1984 to the Department of Defense Arctic Strategy of 2017—followed by observations on the future science needed to support policy. Input from others on the call is encouraged.

This webinar is open to anyone interested in Arctic research and policies. The discussion is part of the lead up to the Arctic Futures 2050 conference that will take place 4-6 September 2019 at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. Registration for the conference is now open.
