Pacific Arctic Observations Addressing Causes and Consequences of Sea Ice Loss 7 October 2015

Pacific Arctic Observations Addressing Causes and Consequences of Sea Ice Loss

In 2015, NOAA’s Arctic Research Program competitively funded three new five-year projects involving $4.2 million in grants (and benefit from additional support by interagency and international partners). Through these three new projects, university partners will help to carry out multidisciplinary observations and research for five years (from 2015­ to 2020), in support of analysis, and modeling in the Pacific Arctic, i.e., the Chukchi ­Beaufort Sea, the East Siberian Sea, and the Arctic Ocean north of these regions.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
