Meeting Overview

The 8th Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Science Team Meeting (ASTM-8) was held from May 9-12, 2022 in Fairbanks, Alaska, in conjunction with a Research to Operations (R2O) workshop with the Alaska land management community (May 12-13). ASTM-8 was a hybrid event with 109 registered in-person attendees meeting at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and 105 registered virtual attendees. The agenda included a mix of presentations from ABoVE thematic working groups and synthesis activities (such as Carbon Dynamics, Hydrology/Permafrost, and Fire Disturbance), as well as from ABoVE partners, collaborators, and local decision makers (such as the Alaska Fire Science Consortium, Polar Knowledge Canada, and others). The focus of the meeting was presenting and discussing ABoVE Phase 2 research results, and paving the way for the start of Phase 3 in 2023.
