5th biennial Arctic Observing Summit 2020 - Online Only
From Tuesday 31 March 2020
To Thursday 02 April 2020
Location Akureyri, Iceland

The AOS moves to Online Only, please visit the event website for additional information.

The AOS fosters communication, international collaboration and coordination of long-term observations aimed at improving understanding of and response to system-scale Arctic change. The AOS is an international forum for optimizing resource allocation, and minimizing gaps and duplication, through coordination of and exchange among researchers, agencies, Indigenous Peoples, non-governmental organizations, the private sector and others involved or interested in long-term observing activities. The AOS serves as a platform to identify and address societal and scientific needs and priorities, minimize gaps in data and information, reduce duplication, improve coverage and breadth, and contribute to solution-based applications and knowledge sharing. 

Rapid and unprecedented system-scale environmental change in polar regions, and other sensitive areas globally, requires adaptation, forecasting, planning and the development of mitigation strategies, all dependent on a timely, accurate, and integrated network of Arctic observing systems. The AOS provides opportunities to make tangible contributions and progress towards the development and operation of such a system of systems spanning all Arctic components, and including consideration of community needs, international cooperation, opportunities, and challenges, and from decision-makers to community members.

Deadline for submitting white papers and short statements is October 18, 2019 (12 pm PT).
