The Role and Impact of a Pan-Arctic Observing Network in Delivering Societal Benefits

Session ID#: 26759

Session Description:
Earth observations in the Arctic contribute critical data that help achieve national and international objectives across a range of domains, including food, energy, and water security; transportation; and natural resource development. The international Arctic scientific community has identified the need for a sustained and integrated pan-Arctic portfolio of observing systems to support the delivery of services and to meet operational and research objectives. The community needs reliable information to identify current reliance of Earth observations to deliver benefit in the Arctic and observation gaps that need to be addressed. In this session, methods for identifying and quantifying the contribution of, or need for, Earth observations in the Arctic and case studies that examine the application of Earth observations to the delivery of societal benefit in the Arctic are of interest. Methods and case studies that address specific applications of Earth observations, information products, and indicators by Arctic end-users are encouraged.
