The Arctic is one of the fastest warming places on Earth. The consequences of this warming are already felt locally and globally and are expected to intensify over the next few decades. As a result, there is great need for scientists to inform the many policy decisions related to weather, water, and climate (WWC) in the Arctic. This AMS Program study takes stock of the state of Arctic science, its organizations, and how it is linked to some of the most discussed policy issues in the Arctic.
