The New England Arctic Network (NEAN) will address links between Arctic change and the natural, social, and built systems throughout the Arctic and the North Atlantic Arctic region. NEAN combines the wealth of academic expertise in Arctic research across New England with researchers, stakeholders, and external partners concerned with environmental, economic, and social impacts, providing an ideal community for anticipating and responding to Arctic change and its impacts on the eastern coast of North America.
