Meeting Summary

This was the third workshop in a series of Arctic System Modeling meetings. The workshop took place in Montreal, coinciding with MOCA 2009. The theme of the workshop was International Collaboration in Arctic System Modeling. It focused on ways in which groups from several nations with strong interests in regional arctic system modeling can work together in pursuit of next-generation models. This was a community workshop, and was advertised in EOS, on ArcticInfo and Cryolist, and at the American Geophysical Union's 2008 Fall meeting.
