U.S. Arctic Observing Coordination Workshop
20-22 March 2012
Captain Cook Hotel
The workshop report is available here.
The overall goal of the U.S. Arctic Observing Coordination Workshop was to coordinate U.S. activities to observe and monitor the Arctic. The workshop was organized around Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) 5-Year Science Goals and Objectives focusing on sea ice, permafrost, land-ice, and society/policy.
Specific meeting outcomes included:
- Developing shared visions of a successful AON
- Identifying what is needed to accomplish that vision
- Identifying specific tasks and timelines for needed activities
- Identifying "showcase" projects for observing activities, with recommendations for short-term implementation (5 years or less), with identified task leads
The workshop was primarily funded by the National Science Foundation's Division of Arctic Sciences with several co-sponsors and is organized by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS). The workshop brought together 104 participants (by invitation), with broad representation from arctic scientists; local, state and federal agencies; decision makers; data managers; and other stakeholders.
