PMEL Contributes to NOAA Arctic Action Plan

arcticactionplan

PMEL scientist and Arctic expert, Dr. James Overland, was one of the program leads on the recently released NOAA Arctic Action Plan.  The plan provides a roadmap to make shared progress in monitoring, understanding, and protecting the vulnerable Arctic region.  PMEL is actively involved in Arctic climate dynamics research by conducting observations and evaluating models of Arctic sea ice to document and predict climate change impacts on Arctic marine ecosystems.
