A study of environmental Arctic change, SEARCH
SEARCH is an initiative undertaken by the Polar Science Center, University of Washington, Seattle. The Study of Environmental Arctic Change is a new program emerging in response to significant changes observed in the Arctic. A Study of Arctic Change Workshop was held in November of 1997 to explore the extent of recent changes observed in the Arctic and to consider a program to study it further. Over 70 oceanographers, atmospheric scientists, and sea ice experts attended.
