AOS 2020 White Papers and Short Statements

 

                        

AOS 2020 - White Papers/Short Statements for Public Review 

In preparation for the 2020 Arctic Observing Summit, community input was invited in the form of white papers and short statements. The following articles have been submitted for public review and discussion for the 2020 Summit. 

Thematic Working Group chairs are currently preparing synthesis documents (to be posted prior to the Summit) based on input received to report on the state of Arctic observing under each 2020 sub-theme. These documents will serve as a catalyst to identify linkages among sub-themes, needs and priorities, and to generate discussion around solutions, implementation, community engagement, and international cooperation. In some cases, working group chairs/rapporteurs will be engaging with you directly for pre-Summit discussions.  

We are pleased to share with you a document summarizing the framework (available here) that we hope will guide preparatory discussions prior to and during the Summit for each working group. In addition to this summary document, a more in-depth version (available here) is provided as direct guidance for working group activities and meant to ensure that input received from all working groups and breakout sessions during the Summit is collected in a way that helps to inform the broader process. 
 

Papers are listed below.

"The Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) is a high-level, biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven, science-based guidance for the design, implementation, coordination and sustained long-term (decades) operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems. The AOS provides a platform to address urgent and broadly recognized needs of Arctic observing across all components of the Arctic system, including the human component. It fosters international communication and the widespread coordination of long-term observations aimed at improving understanding and responding to system-scale Arctic change."
