Arctic in Rapid Transition (ART) Science Workshop – Call for Abstracts and Registration now open
Registration is now open for the second Arctic in Rapid Transition (ART) Science Workshop to be held in Brest, France, from 21-24 October 2014
The ART workshop about “Integrating spatial and temporal scales in the changing Arctic System: towards future research priorities” (ISTAS) aims at discussing the integration of spatial and temporal scales to better understand the changing Arctic system as a whole, by including various Arctic research fields such as physical oceanography, sea-ice, biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems functioning, marine biodiversity, land-ocean interactions, ocean-atmosphere exchanges and ocean acidification, paleo-reconstruction and biological archives, and social sciences. During the workshop, in parallel sessions and discussion groups future Arctic research priorities will be elaborated. Results of this workshop feed into the larger ICARP III meeting (3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning) in Toyama, Japan in April 2015 (http://icarp.arcticportal.org/).
The workshop is open to any scientist who share a common interest in improving our understanding of ongoing changes in the Arctic and developing dialogues on interdisciplinary Arctic research approaches and future directions.
