Communicating why sea ice matters: New directions for the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH)

by Dr. Matthew Druckenmiller - NSIDC/CIRES, University of Colorado Boulder

The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) aims to develop scientific knowledge to help society understand and respond to the rapidly changing Arctic. The SEARCH Sea Ice Action Team (SIAT) has prioritized and recently developed a strategy for science communication targeted toward decision-makers, the media, and other scientists. This talk will discuss new and ongoing efforts of the SIAT to communicate why sea ice and the impacts of its loss matter to a range of societally relevant topics (e.g, ecosystems, lower latitude weather, and coastal communities), and, in the process, to provide a new way of organizing and synthesizing scientific and stakeholder information.
