Polar Research and Policy Initiative (PRPI) will be present at the Arctic Science Summit Week 2016, in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA, attending the Arctic Observing Summit.
The Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) is a high-level, biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven, science-based guidance for the design, implementation, coordination and sustained long-term operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems. The AOS provides a platform to address urgent and broadly recognized needs of Arctic observing across all components of the Arctic system.
AOS aims to build a common vision for sustained, long-term observations of the Arctic and serve as a forum for the planning and coordination of such measurements. The Summit brings together researchers, stakeholders and funding agency representatives to facilitate the design, implementation, coordination and sustained long-term (decades) operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems.
The AOS is led by the International Study of Arctic Change (ISAC) and partners, and is a contribution to the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON) initiative of the Arctic Council, co-led by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC).
AOS 2016 will include presentations, working groups and poster sessions around these themes:
– International and national strategies for sustained support of long-term Arctic observing
– Technology and innovation for sustained Arctic observations
– Contributions of the Private Sector and Industry to sustained Arctic observations
– Actor and Stakeholder engagement and needs in sustained Arctic observations
– Arctic Observations in the context of Global Observing initiatives
– Interfacing Indigenous Knowledge, Community-based Monitoring and Scientific Methods for sustained Arctic observations
