Arctic Civil Infrastructure Workshop
April 21-23, 2010
International Arctic Research Center
University of Alaska – Fairbanks
A 3-day workshop was held at the International Arctic Research Center, University of Alaska – Fairbanks as a key step in developing a Federal-level research plan for arctic civil infrastructure. The main objectives of the workshop were to (a) identify overarching, high priority research needs and (b) develop a plan, or roadmap, for addressing these needs. Participation was by invitation, seeking to bring together 35-40 representatives from within the US that have firsthand knowledge of the challenges facing arctic civil infrastructure systems.
This web site has been established to highlight and share the results of the workshop, as well as continued progress in developing the research plan for arctic civil infrastructure.
We also intend the site to facilitate information exchange among workshop participants, and to become a repository for the outcome of this effort.
This work is being led by the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, in coordination with the US Arctic Research Commission, the Denali Commission, the US Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District, and the University of Alaska - Fairbanks Institute for Northern Engineering.
