The Study for Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces the conference ARCTIC FUTURES 2050: Science for Policy in a Changing Arctic.

Why:

The rapid changes taking place in the Arctic call for immediate policy responses well informed by science and Indigenous knowledge. Today’s policy decisions concerning the Arctic will have substantial long term and global consequences.

Members of the SEARCH-affiliated Permafrost Carbon Network have convened a conference session exploring the permafrost carbon (CO2, CH4) and non-carbon (N2O) feedbacks of climate change as part of the 2018 EGU General Assembly. The session is seeking contributions that address N2O dynamics from Arctic ecosystems that aim to understand the dynamics and estimate the potential importance in climate feedbacks compared to CO2 and CH4. The EGU General Assembly will take place in Vienna, Austria from 08–13 April 2018. Abstract deadline is January 10, 2018.

The Arctic is a vast and dispersed part of the world. While some parts of this region have a well-developed infrastructure, other parts remain sparsely connected to the rest of the world. Doing business in the Arctic can be challenging. As investments are being channeled north, the areas with a developed infrastructure gain a comparative advantage. Smart technological solutions are needed to ensure a sustainable, and evenly divided, development in the Arctic region with its many remote settlements. Innovation, satellite technology and modern infrastructure can make this possible.
