Second International Symposium on the Arctic Research (ISAR-2) Arctic System in a Changing Earth. 7 - 9 December 2010. Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan

The Arctic and surrounding region of sub-Arctic is one key area for the study of global change because the anthropogenic impact is projected to be the largest in this area due to the complicated feedback processes of the nature. This Arctic region is undergoing strong changes in the recent years during the global warming. In order to understand the feedback processes, in which various components are interacting in the Arctic and sub-Arctic, and to project the global warming in the future, we need to exchange more knowledge and information than ever by combining the different scientific communities under the common interest of the Arctic region. The First International Symposium on the Arctic Research (ISAR-1) was successfully held on 4-6 November 2008 at Miraikan in Tokyo, Japan in order to discuss about the Drastic Change under the Global Warming. The total number of participants was 190 from 12 countries. As the statements of ISAR-1, we recognized that Arctic has confronted drastic change in the recent global warming and that further scientific discussions need to be made, national and international cooperation is indispensable for the Arctic climate research, and more collaboration among Arctic and non-Arctic countries is needed. This symposium is planned to be held every 2-years.
Therefore, we planned the Second International Symposium on the Arctic Research (ISAR-2) including some topics under the theme, “Arctic System in a Changing Earth”, and will be held at end of 2010 at Tokyo.
