I would like to invite you to an exciting set of short talks this
week, hosted by the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Glaciers & Sea-level Collaboration Team. At
this meeting, Mayumi Arimitsu (USGS) and Kristin Laidre (University of
Washington will discuss biophysical connections between glaciers and fjords and
marine life (Phytoplankton to Narwhals!). Each researcher will briefly
highlight linkages they study, both in Alaska and Greenland fjords.I’ve previewed their slides and these should
be fun and insightful talks!
We invite all interested researchers and stakeholders to
participate in our third meeting on 11 May 2017 at 9 AM Alaska Time (1 pm EST).
IARPC collaboration teams are designed to assist the
bi-directional flow of information between the research community and
Federal agencies. Think of it as a regular science workshop, but on an ongoing
and monthly basis. For example, researchers present their research to peers and program
managers and learn about new research efforts within their field. Program managers learn about one another’s programs, and identify
synergies between programs and programmatic gaps.
