In the last May, Cold United announced about 2010 Arctic Aviation Expert Conference that eventually took place on October 12-13 in Fairbanks, Alaska/USA. Arranged and hosted by the Institute of the North.
The 2010 Arctic Aviation Expert Conference in Fairbanks provided a valuable platform for experts and stakeholders from across the Arctic to come together and forge new relationships. The energy and enthusiasm throughout demonstrated the importance of increased communication and collaboration.
This time Arctic aviators paid much attention to climate changes. The word “change” was the most popular in discussions and presentations. Participants could hear often such phrases as adaptations to cold and changing climates, impacts of climate change, new products for aviation in a changing climate, changing Arctic, our changing home and so on.
They do not reveal any proposals about ways to stop global warming (i.e. climate changes) or calculate the effect of global warming. They just need to know how to operate in the current Arctic conditions, as they admit the Arctic warming on default.
Further, please, find the list of conference speakers, their reports and links for downloading all presentations in the PDF format.
Are you interested to know how climate changes affected the Arctic and what aviators should do?
