As part of the broader impacts work associated with a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to Purdue Professor Paul Shepson in support of OASIS research, Shepson and his collaborator Peter Lourie, with help from various contributors, have created a set of "Arctic Stories" available online at: http://www.arcticstories.net/. Through video interview, these digital stories capture science in the Barrow area, connections between science and life in the Arctic, climate change and the natural environment in the Arctic, and the impacts of climate change on arctic people and life.
Please enjoy Arctic Stories (http://www.arcticstories.net/) and pass the link on to teachers, friends of the Arctic, and anyone else who might enjoy it as well.

For the past 7 years, a number of arctic researchers have been working together on a project known as Ocean-Atmosphere-Sea Ice-Snowpack (OASIS, http://www.oasishome.net/). OASIS is a set of coupled international projects focusing on understanding the exchange of chemical species between the atmosphere and the surface in the Arctic, how those processes impact the composition of the atmosphere, and how those processes are changing as a result of climate change.
