|Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS)|
||Establish an Arctic Earth Observing System in and around Svalbard
that integrates the studies of geophysical,
chemical and biological processes from all research and monitoring platforms.|
|To achieve this|
Organize all infrastructure and all research and monitoring activities into four observation platforms being land-based, sea-based, glacier/ice-based and space/air-based.
Assess the present infrastructure and activities to identify gaps and weaknesses in the system. Invest in additional infrastructure and activities to close these gaps.|
Establish a Knowledge Centre in Longyearbyen for data assessment, integration, storage and delivery, education and outreach, cooperative efforts, and input to Earth System modeling.|
Take actions to coordinate the SIAEOS initiative with complementary ESFRI efforts as well as other Earth Observation Systems and related modelling efforts.|

On 6-8 May a workshop on the Ny-Alesund Science Flagship 'Terrrestrial Ecosystems' took place. The workshop aimed for a contribution to the Ny-Alesund science plan with focus on international collaboration and an analysis of potential gaps in our present research focus. The resulting document should be a master plan for future directions of research in Ny-Alesund, also in the light of SIOS.
