The Arctic in the Anthropocene: Emerging Research Questions

Craig Medred

A National Academy of Sciences program investigates the rapidly changing landscape in the Arctic and how the changes affect regions that rely on frozen water. This “new normal” of reduced ice and snow has repercussions across the Arctic, from ecosystems and people to climate, according to researchers.

This video focuses on the National Research Council report that has determined emerging questions to help us understand how these changes will affect society and the environment globally.
