Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) tackles convergent scientific challenges in the rapidly changing Arctic, that are needed to inform the economy, security and resilience of the Nation, the larger region and the globe. Major goals of NNA include:
- Improved understanding of Arctic change and its local and global effects that capitalize on innovative and optimized observation infrastructure, advances in understanding of fundamental processes, and new approaches to modeling natural environment, social and built systems interactions.
- New enhanced research communities that are diverse, integrative and well-positioned to carry out productive research at the intersections of Arctic social, natural, and built systems.
- Research outcomes that inform U.S. national security and economic development needs and enable resilient, sustainable Arctic communities.
