Thanks to marine science technical lead at Stantec, Inc. Dr. Francis Wiese, news of SEARCH’s latest phase has reached the Pacific Northwest business community through a number of media outlets.
For Informed Infrastructure magazine, Francis shares some of what SEARCH will accomplish with National Science Foundation funding:
“We put forward a new approach to co-design this study and co-produce the knowledge and understanding needed to address the impacts and consequences of climate change in the Arctic. The study goes beyond one discipline, one geography, and one system of learning and knowing. Together with my colleagues from around the US, as well as Canada, Norway, and Russia, we hope to bring meaningful understanding to decision making at the local, regional, national, and international level.”
