The co-creation and implementation of the ‘Pan-Arctic Observing System of Systems -
pan-AOSS’ requires a well-integrated methodological framework. We have divided up the
actions in Arctic PASSION into 10 interlinked work packages, each focusing on specific
aspects to achieve the overall objective. These can be grouped into three interlinked
Core observing systems elements and Services
work packages 1 - 4
Represents the science and knowledge-based domain and comprises core observing system elements addressed. The focus is on the better integration, enhancement, and increased functionality of existing and new observing components. It is meant to ensure that the Pan-AOSS that can intelligently handle future challenges and provide data and information to address societal needs.
Societal, science policy & decision-making support
work packages 5 – 7
Represents the societal domain, covering aspects of societal needs and benefits, international scientific collaboration, and support of decision-making. It is meant to make the Pan-AOSS societally relevant.
Synthesis, integration, and outreach
work packages 8 and 9
Represents the implementation of the pan-AOSS through synthesis, integration, and outreach. It is meant to ensure that the broad range of outputs of Arctic PASSION are synthesized and the new knowledge is shared through multi-directional communication with all involved actors. It is meant to make the pan-AOSS more holistic, inclusive, and sustainable.
