Group: Summary

   The Arctic Coastal Dynamics (ACD) program is a multidisciplinary, 
   multinational program with the goal of understanding circum-Arctic coastal 
   dynamics as a function of environmental forcing, coastal geology and cryology, 
   and morphodynamic behavior. The ACD program was formed under the auspices of 
   the International Permafrost Association (IPA), and is an official project of 
   the International Arctic Sciences Committee (IASC).

   The ACD program is currently focused on developing a circum-Arctic estimate of 
   sediment and organic input from coastal erosion to inner shelf. Studies 
   indicate that coastal erosion forms a major source of the sediment input and 
   total organic carbon (TOC) input to the Arctic seas.
