PCN Participants

An audience of 120 scientists at the 8th Annual Meeting of the Permafrost Carbon Network.

The latest and greatest on permafrost carbon science was presented in 18 science speed-talks to an audience of 120 scientists at the 8th Annual Meeting of the Permafrost Carbon Network. Many of these brief presentations laid the foundation for nine breakouts in the afternoon during which details for data collection, spatial data representation, analysis procedures, people to involve, and timelines were discussed.

For each of the breakout topics, a summary will be provided for members of the Permafrost Carbon Network, and organizers will host follow-up discussions via web-communication over the course of 2019 to ensure synthesis progress. During the meeting, the contribution and role of the Permafrost Carbon Network to the upcoming 2019 ‘Arctic Futures 2050’ conference was highlighted, which will identify needs of scientists and decision-makers and improve the dialogue between science and policy.
