The Consortium for the Advancement of Marine Arctic Science (CAMAS) has been recently established to facilitate and enhance international collaboration on marine Arctic science. It has been motivated in part by the demonstrated need for, and accomplishments of, similar past efforts, i.e., the Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) and the Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (AOMIP). The overall aim of CAMAS is to advance the understanding and model representation of key marine Arctic processes that contribute to the rapid changes in the Arctic. In particular, CAMAS will focus on the following themes:

  • Drivers and impacts of ocean heat and freshwater transport into and out of the Arctic
  • Ocean-ice-atmosphere interactions in a warming Arctic
  • Biophysical impacts of Arctic marine biogeochemistry

Organizers anticipate that CAMAS will consist of three annual workshops to initiate, execute, and finalize coordinated activities that will advance understanding of these topics through multi-model analysis, model-observational synthesis, and the development and evaluation of process-oriented metrics. Each workshop will be preceded by an Early-Career School. The school will consist of lectures and activities on hot topics in the field, with ample discussion and social time. Some funding is available to support travel costs for EC scientists.

Registration deadline is 1 January 2024.
