The Arctic Risk Platform has been developed by Arctic Basecamp with input and guidance from a world class team of scientists:
Professor Gail Whiteman, Executive Director of Arctic Basecamp & Professor of Sustainability University of Exeter
Professor Julienne Stroeve, Chief Science Officer, Arctic Basecamp & UCL Earth Sciences
Dr. Jennifer Francis, Woodwell Climate Research Center
Professor Jason Box, Geologic Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS)
Professor Alun Hubbard, Tromsø – The Arctic University of Norway
Dr. Mark Parrington, Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service CAMS
Dr. Jenny Watts, Woodwell Climate Research Center
Dr. Susana Hancock, Arctic Basecamp Science Team Coordinator
Arctic Basecamp was created by Executive Director Professor Gail Whiteman (Professor of Sustainability at the University of Exeter, UK), as a vehicle to bring a message of global risk from Arctic change to world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Arctic Basecamp tent is now an established feature at the WEF Annual Meeting in Davos and has also pitched at COP26 in Glasgow, Glastonbury Festival and the Arctic Circle Assembly.
Professor Whiteman is supported by a small team of staff. More information can be found at arcticbasecamp.org.
The following gauges show up-to-date data regarding key indicators in the Arctic. These indicators clearly point to the crisis at hand.
