Strategy for Synthesis Study (CHAMP)
6 September 2001
Dear Arctic Colleague,
The Hydrologic Cycle and its Role in Arctic and Global Environmental Change: A Rationale and
Strategy for Synthesis Study is now available. The report is available on request through ARCUS:

In September 2000, a workshop was convened to identify several notable gaps in our current level
of understanding of arctic hydrological systems. Rapidly emerging data sets, technologies, and
modeling resources provide an unprecedented opportunity to move forward.The report defines three
major research and synthesis challenges and provides recommendations for critical and strategic
investments in arctic system science.
Drafts of this document were circulated for broad community review. The editors thank all who
contributed to this report for their suggestions and participation in this important arctic
research community effort.
