Panel Discussion 3 Impacts of the Changing Arctic

Tuesday, 1 April 2014: 3:15 PM-4:45 PM
Auditorium (AAAS Building)
Host: 2014 AMS Washington Forum
Rear Admiral David W. Titley, Professor & Director, Center for Solutions to Weather and Climate Risk, Penn State Univ., University Park, PA

The future of the Arctic involves less ice, more access, and new fisheries, tourism, and shipping as well as oil, gas, and minerals commerce. The AMS Arctic panel will explore the new Arctic regime and speculate on the needs that will arise at the intersection of policy and the weather, water, and climate enterprise. What tools can AMS partnerships offer that people will use to design and operate facilities in the changing weather and climate patterns of the Arctic? What ocean, weather, and climate and environmental observations and monitoring will forecasters and modelers need to predict future arctic conditions and to foresee the Arctic’s impact on the global future? What critical questions do policy-makers need answers for as the United States prepares to chair the Arctic Council in 2015?
