C018:
Indicators of Arctic Climate Variability and Change





Session ID#: 27233

Session Description:
As the Arctic undergoes rapid change, monitoring indicators of the climate system for variability as well change are needed to advance our understanding of the underlying processes. In addition, climate indicators provide a clear and concise way to communicate the state of the system to various stakeholders and communities.

 

We invite abstracts that explore indicators focused on the high-latitude earth system that improve our understanding and ability to predict links and feedbacks between various components of the Arctic natural and social system. We encourage papers on indicators that utilize existing and planned observational data in the Arctic in addition to those based on models.  Submissions may focus on physical, biological, or chemical processes or human dimensions.
