2023 Research Vessel Tracking & Coordination Tool for Arctic & Alaska Waters is Live

The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is pleased to launch the 2023 Research Vessel Activities compilation webpage that provides information on planned research expeditions through Alaska and Arctic waters. The aim of this outreach tool is to improve collaboration among Arctic researchers throughout the year and to help with communications and coordination with local and Indigenous communities. 

The 2023 Research Vessel Activities tool was compiled and created by IARPC and NOAA Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Arctic Research Program Knauss Fellow Sarah Tucker with support from David Allen (Program Manager, Arctic Research Program at NOAA GOMO), Renee Crain (Arctic Research Support and Logistics Manager, NSF), and Liz Weinberg (Engagement Director, IARPC). Input on research activity was received from multiple federal agencies and partners.

Join us for a Pre-Field Season Meeting: May 25, 9am AKT / 1pm ET

To facilitate information sharing and collaboration, the IARPC Field Operations, Sea Ice, and Marine Ecosystems Communities of Practice will co-host a Pre-Field Season Meeting on May 25, 9am AKT / 1pm ET for a preview of the upcoming field activities. At this meeting, researchers will share information about their upcoming expeditions that is relevant to other researchers and to coastal communities. This meeting is open to anyone who wants to join and will be recorded.  

IARPC will also post when each expedition begins on Facebook and Twitter. Follow IARPC on these platforms to be regularly reminded when expeditions are heading into the field. If you have questions about upcoming research expeditions, please contact Sarah Tucker (Arctic Research Program at NOAA’s Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program & IARPC),
