The Arctic is a vast, ice-covered ocean, surrounded by tree-less, frozen ground, that teems with life, including organisms living in the ice, fish and marine mammals, birds, land animals, and human societies. Changes in the Arctic are happening rapidly, meaning that time is of the essence in exploring and gathering information needed to assess rapid environmental change not only in the Arctic, but around the globe, so that we can prepare for future global impacts.
