The maple sap is rising in New England! As spring arrives, the University of New Hampshire is thrilled to host the ASIAQ3 science workshop (8-11 April 2019). This event will deepen relationships among participating ASIAQ universities and will seek to identify a pan-Arctic initiative related to “Hydrologic Organization during the Thaw: Community, Landscape and Water Dynamics in the Changing Arctic Climate.” We will continue to explore the international collaborative experiences of ASIAQ in order to draft a White Paper on the challenges of working in integrated and trans-disciplinary ways.
This meeting will also serve as an excellent opportunity to connect ASIAQ with the regional New England Arctic Network (NEAN). A public outreach event titled “The Arctic is Melting! Is it Time to Panic?” will feature a panel discussion on how the scientific community, stakeholders, and the public can confront the challenges and opportunities of Arctic change. More information can be found here.
