Arctic Observing Network as a tool for understanding Arctic change

A 3-day symposium in Washington, D.C., from July 10-12, 2007, entitled, "Impact of an Ice-diminished Arctic on Naval and Maritime Operations," jointly sponsored by the National Ice Center and the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, will feature officials from several federal science agencies, the Navy and the Coast Guard. Officials will discuss future challenges and opportunities caused by a documented warming trend in the Arctic that is causing a rapid reduction in ice cover on the world's northernmost sea.

A media briefing at 8:00 a.m. on July 10, 2007, featuring representatives of the participating agencies, will precede the symposium. As part of the briefing, Martin O. Jeffries, director of the National Science Foundation's Arctic Observing Network (AON) program, will discuss the development of a large-scale and long-term network of land, sea and space-based sensors to observe environmental Arctic change and help predict its effects.

What: Media briefing: challenges and opportunities for naval and maritime operations caused by a documented warming trend in the Arctic, and the development of an Arctic Observing Network to track and help predict such changes.

Who: Rear Admiral Timothy McGee, commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command Rear Admiral Brian M. Salerno, assistant commandant for policy and planning, U.S. Coast Guard Mead Treadwell, Chair, U.S. Arctic Research Commission Richard W. Spinrad, assistant administrator for oceanic and atmospheric research, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Martin Jeffries, National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs

When: Tuesday, July 10, 2007, 8:00 a.m.

Where: The U.S. Navy Memorial & Heritage Center, 701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.
