Short Statements

Community Input: Short Statements

Below you can access short statements that were prepared in advance of the AOS. Short statements address observing needs, activities and outcomes that may not have been captured by the overarching themes of AOS 2013, or that may relfect initiatives that are only in the initial stage of development.


"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."
