2015 Arctic Science Conference

The 2015 Arctic Science Conference will be held October 1st—3rd in Anchorage, Alaska. The conference theme is Healthy Estuaries: Sustainability and Resilience.

As the eight Arctic nations become more prominent due to trade and commerce routes for the 21st century, the importance of near shore zones and estuaries to Arctic and Subarctic populations is becoming more explicit. Of the world’s four most geographically vast nations, three are found in the Circumpolar North. Resource development and associated infrastructure may impact the demands on ecosystem services underscoring the necessity to observe, document, understand and respond to climate change.

Conference themes include traditional scientific disciplines, science education, biomedical research, and artistic interpretation of the evolving North. Information about the planned conference agenda can be found on the conference overview page.
