The Distributed Biological Observatory (DBO) is a multidisciplinary Arctic ocean sampling program supported by the NOAA’s Arctic Research Program. ARP supports an annual scientific cruise to the Pacific Arctic region during which U.S. scientists take a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological samplings.
The International Arctic Systems for Observing the Atmosphere (IASOA) coordinates the activities of individual Arctic observatories to provide a collaborative international network for Arctic atmospheric research and operations.
The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Arctic Research Program (ARP) provides reliable and relevant research products and information on the Arctic environment to other parts of NOAA, partner agencies and universities and international collaborators.
In 2014, President Obama released a plan for moving forward on his national strategy to advance U.S. security and stewardship interests in the Arctic. In keeping with the goals and tenets of his strategy, NOAA released its Arctic Action Plan—a document that provides NOAA scientists, stakeholders and partners a roadmap to make shared progress in monitoring, understanding, and protecting this vast, valuable, and vulnerable region.
The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Arctic Research Program (ARP) provides reliable and relevant research, products, and information on Arctic sea-ice and related systems to NOAA, our partner agencies and international partners.
