Renewed funding, renewed focus and renewed partnerships; the Arctic Data Center seeks nominations for the 2021-2024 Science Advisory Board.

The NSF Arctic Data Center Science Advisory Board comprises 10 members who provide advice and leadership to the Center regarding goals and strategic priorities in support of the Arctic research and education community. Through engagement and familiarity with the NSF Arctic Section, and Polar Programs in general, Science Advisory Board members also serve as emissaries for the Center. As such, it is critical that the Advisory Board incorporates diversity that is representative of the Arctic research community at large.

Current advisory board members span diverse disciplines and expertise, including representation from earth systems science, data science, social science, snow cover, informatics, anthropology, and permafrost hydrology. Each board member contributes for a 3 year term and in 2021 we are seeking an additional three members to contribute to the diversity and expertise represented in the current board.  

Nominations are now open for three new members to join the Science Advisory Board. We seek nominations and self-nominations from any community members that are supported by and impacted by Arctic Data Center operations. We are particularly interested in hearing from researchers, educators and data users across diverse social science disciplines (e.g., ethnography, archaeology, economics, sociology, etc.) in addition to the natural sciences (e.g., atmospheric, terrestrial, oceanographic, earth, and environmental sciences).
