Abstract: NOAA's 16th annual Arctic Report Card was released in December, with an overarching theme documenting ongoing and incipient disruptions to Arctic environments and peoples. This year's report card features 14 essays and ACCAP's Rick Thoman will provide a drive-by tour of diverse topics covered this year, ranging from Arctic hydrology to glacial and permafrost hazards to communities to the ongoing changes in underwater soundscape in the Arctic. UAF's Tom Ballinger will provide an overview of air temperatures and Walt Meier with the National Snow and Ice Data Center will review sea ice conditions and drivers during the year.
