The workshop is sponsored by the International Arctic Science Committee, Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme, the Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone research project, International Permafrost Association, and the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change.
The workshop focuses on the response of arctic geophysical and ecosystem features to effects of global warming, i.e., the decreasing sea ice cover, destabilization of permafrost systems, increased exposure of coastal regions to storms, and the reactions of human societies to these changes in the Arctic. Working groups will address physical, biological-ecological, and socio economic perspectives.
