Investigators from the 17 Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Changing Seasonality in the Arctic System (CSAS) Projects that were awarded in 2009 (see Witness Fall 2009) started a process to coordinate research efforts between projects with a Principal Investigator meeting in October 2010. The goal of the meeting, held at the University of Vermont, was to explore opportunities for cross-project integration and synthesis. The meeting's Organizing Committee included Andrea Lloyd, Middlebury College; William (Breck) Bowden, University of Vermont; Uma Bhatt, University of Alaska Fairbanks; and Judah Cohen, Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc. Outcomes of the meeting will be posted on a Changing Seasonality in the Arctic System website, to be launched this fall.
