NSIDC Scientist to Participate in Congressional Briefing

Mark Serreze will be one of three speakers at a May 23 Congressional Briefing, "Recent Scientific Findings of Arctic Environmental Change."

The briefing, sponsored by the non-profit Arctic Research Consortium of the United States, will explain the science behind the recent news coverage of ongoing environmental change in the Arctic. Legislators will learn about significant findings concerning temperature, sea ice, permafrost, tundra, and the freshwater cycle; this information will provide a foundation for policy discussions. Serreze will speak specifically to Arctic climate change and interactions between the atmosphere, oceans, and sea ice.
