The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) will be hosting a town hall event on Friday, 14 December from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. EST at the Marriott Marquis, Independence D in Washington D.C. in conjunction with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting.
Recognizing that unprecedented environmental change challenges the pace of research, the SEARCH Town Hall will explore with interested scientists where the program has provided benefit and—more importantly—where it could do so in the future. After a brief overview of SEARCH’s recent efforts (focused on sea ice, land ice, and permafrost), contributing members of SEARCH will lead a discussion considering: How can the Arctic research community best advance actionable and discovery science? What could or should a multi-disciplinary effort accomplish that otherwise would not get done? How might our community use the upcoming (September 2019) Arctic Futures 2050 conference to advance science and serve pressing policy needs?
