ASSW 2021 - Changing Arctic Coasts session



We are pleased to announce a session on changing Arctic Coasts at the Arctic Science Summit Week in March 2021 (virtual).

Session Theme:

The changing Arctic ocean: dynamics and impacts

Session Title:

Changing Arctic Coasts

The Arctic coast is undergoing dramatic physical, biogeochemical and socio-economical changes. Environmental factors such as warming air temperatures, declining sea ice, permafrost thaw and increased forcing events (storminess) are critical drivers accelerating these changes. Increasing erosion rates lead to the release of large amounts of organic matter and contaminants to the nearshore zone and the upper shelf, transforming the ecosystem and altering trophic systems. It is also putting new pressures on Arctic coastal dynamics with the loss of landscapes and cultural heritage sites as well as damages on infrastructure creating stress and uncertainty in local communities. The aim of this session is to bring together researchers, indigenous partners and community members who are studying, predicting, modelling and living with these dramatic coastal and nearshore changes across the Arctic. This session will ultimately provide critical information to support future planning, mitigation and adaptation measures of these changing permafrost coastal landscapes. This session is co-organized by the EU H2020 Nunataryuk and the NSF PerCS-Net project and is a contribution to the coastal processes action group of T-MOSAiC.

The deadline to submit an abstract to this session is November 30, 2020!
