The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory of the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) is an international, interdisciplinary initiative organized around a year-long drifting constellation of coupled system observations in the Central Arctic (2019-2020). The ultimate goal is to improve understanding of coupled atmosphere-ice-ocean-ecosystem processes in the Central Arctic to support improved sea-ice forecasting, regional weather forecasting, and climate prediction.

The Pacific Arctic Group (PAG) is a group of institutes and individuals having a Pacific perspective on Arctic science. Organized under the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the PAG has as its mission to serve as a Pacific Arctic regional partnership to plan, coordinate, and collaborate on science activities of mutual interest. The four PAG principle science themes are climate, contaminants, human dimensions and structure, and function of Arctic ecosystems.
This meeting will focus on 'business' matters as well as cover updates of research plans for 2016 field season.
