In an editorial in Science magazine U.S. Arctic Research Commission Chair Fran Ulmer comments on the scientific aspects of the Arctic Council and the two-year US Chairmanship that begins this week.

“This month, the United States takes over the chairmanship of the Arctic Council, a position it last held in 1998. Since then, global interest in the Arctic has increased, and the council has evolved considerably. What has spurred that interest, and what will the council focus on under U.S. leadership?”
