With more than 23,000 Earth and space scientists in 2016, AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The meeting continues to be the premiere place to present your research; hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field; and network with colleagues that can enhance your career.
Brendan Kelly, Executive Director of SEARCH, will discuss SEARCH and the Arctic Answers initiative.
Communities and governments need reliable information to adapt to rapid changes in the Arctic environment. Scientists need to continually advance the body of knowledge and—at the same time—answer immediately practical questions. The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) brings together researchers from diverse disciplines and institutions to accelerate cross-discipline syntheses and to make scientific understanding more readily accessible to policy makers and other stakeholders.
SEARCH Permafrost Action Team Leads (Christina Schädel and Ted Schuur) will convene a session (Climate change and the carbon balance in permafrost) at the 2nd Asian Conference on Permafrost in Sapporo, Japan.
This IARPC Arctic Data Collaboration Team Meeting will include a presentation by SEARCH's Permafrost Action Team lead Christina Schädel on the Permafrost Carbon Network and a discussion of Arctic Carbon Budget synthesis efforts.
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is initiating implementation of the Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021. SEARCH's Permafrost Action Team lead Christina Schädel (NAU), Andrew Balser (DOD), Benjamin Jones (USGS), will be leading the Permafrost Collaboration Team (PCT), and they are inviting all interested researchers and stakeholders to participate in their first meeting on 9 May at 10 AM Alaska Time (2 pm EST).
During the AMAP Conference, SEARCH Sea Ice Action Team Staff Member Matthew Druckenmiller will be scheduling "informational interviews" with decision-maker audiences, such as within Executive agencies, Congressional offices, NGOs, and local and state level institutions, to gather feedback on the SIAT's communication approaches and to systematically outline the preferences, potential, and obstacles for "knowledge to action".
Other SEARCH Science Steering Committee members will also be attending and participating in this event.
