C007:
Arctic Science: Beyond Silos to Synthesis and Systems





Session ID#: 25995

Session Description:
The changing Arctic is a new environment of opportunities and challenges. It is attracting increasing interest from the maritime transportation, natural resources, and tourism industries, with implications for cultural transitions, infrastructure, and national security. Arctic research is often siloed along disciplinary lines, reflecting traditional science education and research practice. There is a need for a multi-knowledge and interdisciplinary approaches that focus on synthesis and the inter-linking of systems to enhance our understanding and to predict changes; for generating value-added products and services for Arctic residents and operators; and to inform decision- and policy-making. This session, organized by U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) staff and implementation team leaders, offers an opportunity to discuss topics such as current Arctic synthesis, system science and Indigenous Knowledge thinking and practice; the co-production of knowledge; socio-ecological systems and resilience; Arctic region system modeling; and Arctic-global system linkages.
