Watch Video: Release Event
This webinar, originally presented on April 29, 2014, provided a briefing on the NRC report "The Arctic in the Anthropocene: Emerging Research Questions". The co-chairs of the authoring committee presented emerging research questions that span traditional disciplinary boundaries as well as tools for meeting the challenges of understanding a rapidly changing Arctic.

Watch Video: The Arctic in the Anthropocene: Emerging Research Questions
The Arctic is transitioning to a "new normal" of reduced ice and snow, bringing rapid changes to ecosystems, people, and climate. Arctic societies are also changing rapidly, especially in the political realm as indigenous people achieve greater autonomy in some regions. This video highlights findings of a new National Research Council report that identifies emerging research questions to help us understand how environmental and societal transitions will affect the Arctic and the rest of the world.
