Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS) is a consortium of international institutions with research infrastructure in and around Svalbard. SIOS is building an integrated observing system (https://sios-svalbard.org/ObservingSystem) for long-term measurements addressing Earth System questions.
SIOS publishes an annual State of Environmental Science in Svalbard (SESS) report (https://sios-svalbard.org/SESSreport). The first issue was released in January 2019. The report summarises the state of current knowledge of key Earth System Science parameters and analyses how these parameters influence one another. The SESS report outlines the work that has been done in the previous year within the SIOS cooperation to optimise the observing system and recommends research priorities for the following year(s).Read more ...
