The goal of this conference was to define and summarize the state of knowledge on the role of the Arctic and Antarctic regions in global change and to identify gaps in knowledge. Topics covered include: detection and monitoring of change : climate variability and climate forcing : ocean/sea ice/atmosphere interactions and processes : effects on biota and biological feedbacks : ice sheet, glacier and permafrost responses and feedbacks : paleoenvironmental studies : aerosols/trace gases.
