Arctic Coasts Workshop in Boulder, Colorado | 9—11 October 2023

The 2023 Arctic Coasts Workshop brought over 60 in-person and 14 online participants together representing multiple NSF Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) projects as well as other interested individuals and groups to exchange knowledge regarding coastal hazard impacts, strengthen and expand partnerships for more effective communication and collaboration, and contribute towards actionable Arctic community-prioritized research, education, and community resilience.

Permafrost and Infrastructure Symposium in Northern Alaska | 28 July—5 August 2023

Permafrost and Infrastructure Symposium, July 28-August 5, 2023, Northern Alaska

The Permafrost & Infrastructure Symposium will bring together national and international Arctic science and engineering experts to share knowledge on how to address impacts of permafrost thaw on roads and community infrastructure in Northern Alaska from 28 July to 5 August 2023. Participants will include U.S. researchers working in Northern Alaska, their international colleagues with expertise in other parts of the Arctic, and local experts from Alaska’s North Slope, including regional planners, project managers, and policy makers.

International Arctic Coastal Network (IACN) retreat in Mystic, Connecticut | 16—21 October 2022

The IACN retreat brought together 42 researchers from 22 different research institutions located in eight different countries to focus on the unprecedented climate and land use change issues impacting Arctic coasts and the communities located there. Researchers from the United States, Austria, Canada, Portugal, Germany, United Kingdom, Poland, and Russia brought a wide diversity of perspectives on the issues being faced along Arctic coasts. The majority of the attendees were graduate students or early career researchers.

Permafrost Coastal Systems Network Data Portal

Visit the PerCS-Net portal at the Arctic Data Center to discover datasets related to Arctic coastal research.

Permafrost Coastal Systems Network VizSpace

The PerCSNet data visualization space developed with AXIOM Data Science includes a number of datasets that show geotagged coastal imagery, current and past sea ice conditions, and near real-time environmental conditions. We will continue to populate the VizSpace with existing datasets from the Arctic Data Center portal, other national and international data repositories, as well as help ingest previously unpublished datasets.
