History of the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board (AOSB) and cooperation with other organizations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in report


At a meeting in Bremerhaven in May 1984, a group
of scientists and scientific managers from five countries, after reviewing ongoing and proposed
national and international scientific activities
including the Marginal Ice Zone Experiment (MIZEX),
the Fram Strait Project, the proposals from existing
international scientific organizations related to
activities in the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas, agreed that there should be formed a body known as the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board (AOSB). This non-governmental body, with members from research and government institutions – in soon 16 countries – met annually to promote scientific and technical coordination and establish joint priorities and programs (see Table 1).
