Activity Description:

Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS) will engage in the ICARP IV process. SIOS has 28 member institutions from 10 different countries active in research in and around Svalbard. SIOS publishes an annual report entitled “The State of Environmental Science in Svalbard” (SESS), which includes recommendations for future activities to close knowledge gaps in Svalbard. There have been more than 200 recommendations since the first SESS report in 2018, and these will form the basis of the SIOS contribution. The SESS reports are the main tool used to develop SIOS research infrastructure. In addition, we will utilise the contributions from the Interdisciplinary Polar Studies 2023 (IPS 2023) workshop.
