This town hall with SEARCH (www.arcus.org/search-program) leadership will provide a forum for exchanging information and ideas on SEARCH. SEARCH recently received new funding for a suite of interdisciplinary Arctic science, synthesis, and communication activities. The town hall will provide updates on new SEARCH funding and activities, including those related to the SEARCH 5-year science goals and the Arctic Observing Network; discuss how researchers can participate in SEARCH; gather input from the community; and address questions.
Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP)
The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program(SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.
National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI)
The program provides U.S-based institutions of higher education, not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations with opportunities to acquire major instrumentation that supports the research and research training goals of the organization and that may be used by other researchers regionally or nationally.
A free public symposium on how the Arctic is changing and what it means for people and places around the globe.
The PRB’s "Arctic Matters" initiative aims to increase public understanding of changes affecting the Arctic region and the many potential impacts of such changes on people and places around the world. We are striving to reach people—across a wide array of governmental, non-profit, private sector, media, and educational institutions—who do not normally think about Arctic science or policy as truly relevant to their work or their lives.
Scientific discoveries achieved from, within, and beneath the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, ice caps and valley glaciers are critical to society today, but large group endeavors are not achieved without significant advance planning. What is your vision for future subglacial science? The U.S. Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO) is sponsoring an interdisciplinary science community planning workshop to identify the science drivers, targets, and timelines of subglacial access drilling for the coming decade. The goal of this workshop is to form consensus within the U.S.
The 10th Arctic Frontiers conference will be held in Tromsø, Norway from Sunday 24 January to Friday 29 January 2016. The title for the 2016 conference is Industry and Environment.
The Arctic is a global crossroad between commercial and environmental interests. The region holds substantial natural resources and many actors are investigating ways to utilize these for economic gain. Others view the Arctic as a particularly pristine and vulnerable environment and highlight the need to limit industrial development.
National Science Foundation Long Term Research in Environmental Biology
The Long Term Research in Environmental Biology program, through the National Science Foundation, addresses a problem faced by many investigators, which is that typical funding awards do not have time frames long enough to address long-term, data-driven research proposals. These awards are designed to provide funding to maintain an ongoing, long-term research project for a period of a decade or even longer.
