The Arctic is responding to climate change faster and more intensely than the rest of the planet, with diverse and far-reaching impacts.  During this public event, Arctic specialists will present and discuss some of the most significant ways in which the Arctic is changing, focusing primarily on diminishing sea ice and melting permafrost, feedbacks on climate, and consequences for marine mammals, tundra plants and animals, and indigenous peoples of the Arctic.
