In its final report to Council, the IASC Action Group on Geosciences concluded that as a contribution to the 3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP III) IASC should compile a “review/state of the art” publication that covers the range of geoscience topics in the Arctic arena. As such, it would be a valuable introduction for students and researchers new to working in the Arctic, as well as an important resource for policy makers in providing an up-to-date summary of emerging topics in Arctic research.

Members of the Action Group are currently compiling a Special Publication of the Geological Society of London, entitled “Emerging Questions on Arctic Geosciences”.
