TRANSCRIPT

  • John DudeneyASSW IPY SessionApril 21 2005

  • IPY 2007-2008 ConceptICSU and WMO are co-sponsoring:An intensive burst of internationally coordinated, interdisciplinary, scientific research and observations focussed on the Earths Polar regions starting in 2007

  • Current Status of Polar RegionsChange in the Polar RegionsGlobal LinkagesNew FrontiersPolar Regions as Vantage PointsThe Human Dimension

    The Human Dimension also runs through the first five Themes.Data Management and Education, Outreach & Communication are present in all six themes

    IPY Themes

  • IPY and Societal Benefits IPY can bring societal benefits to the polar regions in the form of new knowledge, in enhancements to the systems observing change and in understanding of natural and human processes there

    Improving weather information, forecasting, and warnings Improving predictions of climate variability and change Reducing loss of life and property from natural and human- induced disasters

    Establishing how to mitigate or adapt to environmental factors affecting human health and well being

  • IPY and Societal Benefits Improving the sustainable management of fisheries/ agriculture

    Improving the management of resources of water and energy

    Improving the management and protection of terrestrial, coastal, and marine ecosystems

    Understanding, monitoring, and conserving biodiversity

    Providing indigenous people with the tools and capabilities to tackle these societal issues and build capacity

  • IPY Activities over the past year (1)Joint Committee appointed to oversee IPY implementation includes ex-officio members from IASC,SCAR, IOC, ICSU, WMO

    International Programme Office established in UK (Nov 2004) International competition for IPY Director David Carlson (USA)

    The implementation document A Framework for IPY 2007-2008 was published (Nov 2004). Available as a pdf on the IPY website

    ICSU-WMO issue Call for Expressions of Intent aimed particularly at projects with heavy logistic needs (Nov) Deadline 14th Jan 05

  • IPY Activities over the past year (2)First Meeting of the Joint Committee and First Meeting of the Open Consultative Forum (March 2005) - CAFF, AMAP, FARO, U of Arctic, IPS, IASSA, IASC and ICARP II represented.

    IPY JC assessed ~ 900 proposals and reduced these to ~60 topics by clustering proposals along disciplinary lines. Cross-cutting noted.

    Assessment letters sent to primary contacts of each proposal and potential lead projects approached for each topic.

    Updated website launched (www.ipy.org) with searchable database of all the IPY proposals and the assessment summary

  • Some Results from the Assessment (1)Arctic EoIs = 483, Antarctic = 159, Bipolar = 136

    Selection of country involvement (not just leading) in EoIs

  • Some Results from the Assessment (2)Distribution of EoIs through spheresAtmosphere= 114 Geosphere = 105Cryosphere= 146 Biosphere = 135Hydrosphere= 98 Human Dimension = 104Space/Earth Ob = 67Education/Legacy= 80

    Association of EoIs with major programmes/areasCASO (S. Ocean)= 21 Permafrost = 17 iAOOS (Arctic Ocean)= 22 CliC = 65 SEARCH= 21 WAIS studies = 11

    Clusters and the IPY Themes

  • Mandatory IPY Activity Characteristics Makes significant advances within one or more IPY themesInvolves at least one polar region and takes place within the IPY timeframe Contributes to international collaboration Presents a viable management plan and organisational structure, including a time line when commitments (funding, logistic etc) can be expected Presents a viable approach for securing funding Proposes a viable plan for securing appropriate logistical support Signs up to the principles and aims of IPY data management and proposes a viable data management plan Proposes a viable plan or approach for education, outreach and communication activities Shows how it will foster the next generation of polar researchers

  • Desirable Characteristics of IPY ActivitiesIncludes nations not traditionally involved in polar research (at present only 3 non-polar countries in IPY)Provides the opportunity for a legacy of infrastructure (observation sites, facilities, systems) Builds on existing plans, programmes or initiatives or at least does not conflict with themHas interdisciplinary elementsIs endorsed by one or more IPY National Committee or International Organisation (ensures involvement of National Committees who link to funding agencies)
