Two IARPC Collaborations members and scientists brought Arctic research to public audiences last week through public radio. 

Dr. Cheryl Rosa, Deputy Director of the U.S. Arctic Research Commission in Anchorage, AK, appeared on the Science Friday radio show. Cheryl illustrated the effects of a rapidly warming arctic on the phenology of several arctic species, as well as the value of long term research. Listen to the audio here

Dr. Martin Jeffries, Program Officer at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and Team Lead for the IARPC’s Sea Ice Collaboration Team, was featured on NPR while demonstrating seagliders, buoys and other probes involved in ONR's Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) program. The largest experiment of it’s kind, the MIZ program uses these tools to track the break up of Arctic sea ice over the summer. Read and listen to the story here
