Understanding and Predicting the Rapidly Changing Arctic: The Need for Enhanced Collaboration in Research

Martin O. Jeffries, Research Physical Scientist, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory

Monday, January 14, 2019  |  4:30pm  |  041 Haldeman Center, Dartmouth College. Free and open to all.

Rapid change is occurring throughout the Arctic System, and change in one component of the system is having cascading effects on other components as well as consequences for regions and people far from the Arctic. Consequently, it’s an exciting time to be an Arctic researcher, with many opportunities for individual and collective research. Indeed, because the scale of change and its impacts in the Arctic and elsewhere is so great, collaborative research is vital. Drawing on a career as a university researcher, and as a Federal government R&D program manager, including a recent 25-month detail to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Dr. Jeffries will discuss opportunities and platforms for enhanced collaborative research in the Arctic. These include ‘IARPC Collaborations’ and the implementation of the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021, and the growing importance of Arctic Science Ministerials. As a member of the senior leadership team at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, Dr. Jeffries has particular responsibility for strengthening the Arctic sciences and engineering portfolio, and collaborations with research partners across a broad spectrum.
