Abstract
The purpose of a National Arctic Health Science Policy is to assure that theUnited States is prepared with adequate knowledge to execute its policies fornational development, environmental protection, and national defense in circumarcticlands and seas and mid-latitude cold or mountain regions in amanner that protects and promotes the health and quality of life of peopleliving and working in those regions. The magnitude of federal financial and programcommitments to the provision of health services in the Arctic dictatesvigorous research to make federal operations more effective and efficient.Additionally, the Arctic provides opportunities for research that can enhancethe health of all Americans.Resources for arctic health research currently fall short of national needs; progressis restrained by the absence of policies to coordinate and promoteresearch. This National Arctic Health Science Policy provides a clear statementof national commitment to a vigorous, continuing program of arctic healthresearch.

Abstract
We investigate the recent large changes that have occurred in the Arctic over the period of 1965-1995 through examination of 86 regionally dispersed time series representing seven data types: climate indices, atmosphere, ocean, terrestrial, sea ice, fisheries, and other biological data. To our knowledge, this is the first semi-quantitative analysis of Arctic data that spans multiple disciplines and geographic regions. Although visual inspection and Principal Component Analysis of the data collection indicate that Arctic change is complex, three patterns are evident. The temporal pattern of change calculated as the first Principal Component (PC1), representing 23% of the variance, has a single regime-like shift near 1989 based on a large number of time series, which include projections from a strong stratospheric vortex in spring, the Arctic Oscillation, sea ice declines in several regions, and changes in selected mammal, bird, and fish populations. The pattern based on the second Principal Component (PC2) shows interdecadal variability over the Arctic Ocean Basin north of 70° N; this variability is observed in surface wind fields, sea ice, and ocean circulation, with the most recent shift near 1989. Contributions to PC1 cover a larger geographic area than PC2, and are consistent with a recent amplification of the interdecadal mode due to polar processes such as increased incidence of cold stratospheric temperature anomalies or internal feedbacks. Most land processes--such as snowcover, greenness, Siberian runoff, permafrost temperatures--and certain subarctic sea ice records show a third pattern of a linear trend over the 30-year interval, which is qualitatively different than either PC1 or PC2. These variables are from lower latitudes and often integrate the atmospheric or oceanographic influence over several seasons including summer. That more than half of the data collection projects strongly onto one of the three patterns, suggests that the Arctic is responding as a coherent system over the previous three decades. However, no single index or class of observations exclusively tracks change in the Arctic, a conclusion that emerges from a multivariate analysis.

Abstract
INTRODUCTION: The objectives of this project were two-fold, to: (1) implement rapid, simple, and inexpensive test methods enabling the detection of the foodborne pathogens Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella in foods and related samples, for the purpose of establishing basic on-site food microbiology testing capability at the Nunavik Research Centre (NRC) in Kuujjuaq, with the provision of hands-on training in the operation of methods; and (2) use this new capability to conduct a survey of the eastern Canadian Arctic in order to ascertain the prevalence of E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella in traditional meats derived from arctic food animals.METHODS: To verify the effectiveness of training provided to NRC staff, proficiency test samples consisting of ground beef inoculated with salmonellae and E. coli O157:H7 were prepared by the Proficiency Testing Unit of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and shipped to the NRC for analysis. The NRC laboratory demonstrated 100% accuracy in the identification of the target pathogens in all samples, demonstrating the successful implementation of on-site test capability. For the prevalence study, a total of 129 samples from arctic mammals, fowl, fish and environmental swabs from community freezers were analyzed at both the NRC and CFIA laboratories.RESULTS: No E. coli O157- or Salmonella-positives were identified for any of the samples examined.CONCLUSION: These results represent a first step towards the creation for future reference of a database on the prevalence of the pathogens E. coli O157 and Salmonella.

Abstract
The major goals of this 166-page book are to describe the state and variability of the Arctic sea ice cover, to demonstrate methods for sea ice studies, and to describe and test hypotheses that will allow us to understand and predict future Arctic sea ice conditions. The authors synthesize data collected and experience gained by Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) scientists during their more than 85 years of Arctic exploration.

Abstract
Earth's albedo (the percent of solar radiation reflected back into the atmosphere) can be a major climate feedback component. Because the ice-covered poles have the highest albedo of any other locale on the planet, major changes in this ice can "tip" the planet to a cooler or hotter place. Today, we are witnesses to such a shift--the Arctic's permanent sea ice is rapidly melting.
