Michael in front of UNIS, Longyearbyen
Four experts, including INTAROS collaborator Michael Køie Poulsen from NORDECO, Denmark, were invited by the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) to present at a seminar with the title, "Community Science in Arctic Research and Observing: Past, Present, and Future."
The seminar was one in a series of seminars where ARCUS invites leading Arctic researchers and community leaders to share their latest findings in Arctic research and what they mean for decision-making.
Each presenter discussed how they have engaged Arctic residents or visitors in the process of data collection to enhance our understanding of northern environments and how they are changing today.
Michael provided insights on developing community-based observing programs in the Arctic, describing the work carried out in INTAROS - "Enhance community-based observing programs for participatory research and capacity-building (WP4)".
