2023 Science Board Meeting

29 Feb 2024

NPRB directs research towards species, processes, and dynamics in the marine ecosystems of Alaska, including the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Sea, the Aleutian Islands, and the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas in the Arctic, to improve the understanding of Alaska marine systems and inform effective fishery management. [...] Rationale/Purpose of the Award The main purpose of the PICES Open Data Excellence Award is to honor those who have excelled in promoting and coordinating marine scientific research by actively and openly sharing and exchanging information and data originating within the PICES region or relevant to the PICES community. [...] In this context, we propose PICES establish AP-ARC to coordinate and integrate PICES scientific activities on the Arctic issues and to further advance the understanding of the Arctic system and linkages and impacts to the North Pacific. [...] The working groups have discussed about the theoretical effects of climate change on the carbon cycle in the ocean (WG-33), as well as the showcases of innovative technologies, methodologies, and best practices that leverage the potential of the world's oceans to carbon negative emissions (WG-46). [...] However, the increase in the number of UNDOS activities and the growing size of the community have correspondingly increased the challenge.
