Town Hall Abstract:
The Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) is an ongoing international program conducting a multi-nation, oceanographic field based effort on a Pan Arctic Scale over approximately two years during a single season (late summer) to achieve the baseline understanding of the fundamental structure and function of the linked carbon-ecosystem-physical systems that will permit detection of ongoing and future changes.
The COVID pandemic delayed the start of many planned field programs; however, several efforts were able to occur in summer 2021 and others are planned for summer 2022. This town hall will provide an update on the progress of the international program and on plans for the U.S. contribution to the SAS program, including potential collaborative opportunities to join a U.S.-led cruise.
