White Papers and Short Statements
The Arctic Observing Summit Executive Organizing Committee welcomes community input and the submission of short statements on the AOS 2020 themes.
Statements will be made public in January 2020.
Thank you for your contributions.
Reminder: The deadline to submit contributions is November 15, 2019
Why is Community input needed?
The design, development, implementation and sustained operation of an adaptive, relevant and responsive Arctic observing system requires the expertise and input from everyone affected by, engaged or interested in observing activities, applications and derived products. Diverse and inclusive representation from all sectors is fundamental for the success of an international Arctic observing system of systems to integrate a broad range of perspectives.
Invitation for short statements for AOS 2020.
Community input and perspectives are invited in the form of white papers and short statements for AOS 2020. Community input can serve to highlight important data, management, or logistical needs or gaps, explore emerging opportunities, address a current challenge, present new initiatives or technology that can contribute to Arctic observing (including global programs), or review on-going observing activities or issues that are relevant for the development, application, operation, or support of a sustained Arctic observing network. Community input (white papers/short statements) should link to the themes identified for AOS 2020 (click here for a description of the themes). However, other input on important and relevant topics related to AOS are welcome also under the category of ‘OTHER: Other high-priority issues for Arctic observing’.
These statements will be used to help guide discussions during the AOS Thematic Working Group sessions. Authors may be invited to give presentations during AOS 2020, and a synthesis of white paper issues will inform recommendations and action items adopted at the Summit and conveyed to Arctic Council Working Groups and other local, national and international bodies overseeing, supporting or carrying out sustained Arctic observations.
Community input was invited during the inaugural AOS in 2013 and Thematic Working Groups prepared synthesis documents and recommendations for the design and implementation of a system of Arctic observing systems, and to guide future Summits. Please visit this link for examples of input submitted previously.
