The goal of the ongoing Western Arctic Shelf-Basin Interactions (SBI) project is to improve our understanding of the impacts of global change on the physical and biogeochemical connections among the continental shelves, slopes, and deep basins of the western Arctic.  SBI was developed to include three phases: Phase I (1999-2001) included retrospective synthesis, opportunistic sampling and modeling, Phase II (2002-2006) is the on-going multi-year field program and modeling effort in the Amerasian Arctic, and the planned Phase III will be the pan-Arctic synthesis and modeling component. The purpose of this evening Town Hall session is to have an open-forum to discuss implementation objectives and planning for SBI Phase III and to solicit community input for a systems approach to understanding Arctic shelf-basin dynamics.
