Arctic Data Center

To promote the analysis and synthesis of Arctic data and to inform ongoing development of the data repository, the Arctic Data Center is soliciting requests for proposals for a Synthesis Working Group, with research to begin by August 2017. Funding is available for one Working Group to host two meetings at the Arctic Data Center in Santa Barbara, California, of approximately 15 participants each, over an anticipated 1-1.5 year period.

Proposals must focus on Arctic-related research issues, and primarily (but not necessarily exclusively) involve the analysis and synthesis of data contained within the Arctic Data Center Repository. Proposals will be reviewed by the Arctic Data Center’s Science Advisory Board for intellectual merit and broader impacts, and consideration will also be made as to the availability and sources of data needed by the project, as well as how the project will serve to evaluate and inform future directions for the Arctic Data Center’s services.
