--------------------
The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is pleased to announce the next Arctic Research Seminar Series event featuring Sandra Starkweather (NOAA/U.S. Arctic Observing Network). The event will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office at 1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. on Friday, 21 July 2017 at 12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT.

This seminar will also be available as a webinar live-stream for those unable to attend in person.

Registration is required for this event.

The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings some of the leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. These seminars will be of interest to federal agency officials, congressional staff, non-governmental organizations, associations, and the public.

This seminar titled "The U.S. Arctic Observing Network – Mobilizing Interagency Observing Actions in an Era of Rapid Change " will be presented by Sandra Starkweather and will discuss the capabilities of the new U.S. AON initiative and how they are being mobilized.

Sandra Starkweather is the Executive Director for the US Arctic Observing Network, a NOAA funded position created to advance NOAA and US agency participation in partnered arctic observing activities and work towards a framework concept for an interagency Arctic Observing Netwok (US AON). With a joint background in engineering (energy systems, renewables, conservation), earth science (Arctic climatology) and science policy, Sandy has worked in a consulting engineering capacity, university research, project management and planning. During this time, she spent twelve years traveling to/from Greenland to either participate in or support Arctic field research. Sandy has combined her experiences to advance coordination among independently funded, flagship Arctic observatories for the IASOA (http://iasoa.org) consortium and to advance the implementation of the U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee's (IARPC) Five Year Plan for Arctic Research. She maintains a strong interest in improving the effectiveness of the Arctic research enterprise, particularly in situ observational research, through building stronger collaborations among all parties (stakeholders) who benefit from sustained Arctic observing.

This event is a brown-bag lunch that will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office (1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. Fourth Floor). Cookies and beverages will be provided. A live webinar is also available to those unable to attend in person. Instructions for accessing the event online will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.
