[MIS19-03] Long-term Plan for Arctic Environmental Research compiled by JCAR
Keywords:global warming, biodiversity, basic research for Arctic environment, breakthrough methods
The four objectives are as follows. The first one, which is the background for formation of JCAR, is research on “Understanding of the abrupt-complex phenomenon and elucidation of the mechanisms and impacts associated with global warming enhanced in the Arctic, along with improvement of their future prediction”. In this objective, seven themes have been selected such as amplification of warming in the Arctic. The second one, research to elucidate “Biodiversity in land and ocean, and also the effects of anthropogenic environmental change on ecosystem, not limited to global warming” is divided into terrestrial and marine themes. The third one covers “Broad and important research on the Arctic environment and its fundamental information” and includes three themes such as the geo-space environment surrounding the earth. The fourth objective covers three categories of methods related to the previous themes, “Monitoring, modelling and integration of the two, enabling breakthroughs in environmental research”.
