International North Atlantic-Arctic Planning Workshop (Arlington, VA)
This international planning workshop was the first step in fostering the development of a large multidisciplinary research program focused on the coupled North Atlantic-Arctic system that will facilitate partnerships among U.S., European Union (EU), and Canadian scientists. The workshop, which was jointly supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the EU, convened expertise in marine biogeochemistry, biodiversity, ecosystem dynamics, paleoceanography, ocean physics, etc. to establish the interdisciplinary framework for a large international research initiative that will examine key components of the North Atlantic-Arctic system (e.g., Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, or AMOC, spring bloom timing, biological carbon pump, ecosystem structure as well as their dynamics, etc.) and associated sensitivities to circulation and climate changes.
