Overview and Goals

The Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting is focused on the science. The meeting goals are to:

  • Present and discuss scientific findings and advances resulting from Arctic observing projects;
  • Discuss operational and technological achievements of observing science projects and efforts funded through U.S. local, state, and federal agencies, and private and non-profit organizations;
  • Explore how well new observational achievements meet major science goals;
  • Identify opportunities for collaboration to develop high impact scientific synthesis products and papers; and
  • Strengthen the goals, identity, and activities of an integrated Arctic Observing System.

Core funding for the meeting has been awarded to ARCUS by NSF's Arctic Observing Network program.
