Welcome to Magnetic North, a blog by Arctic and Subarctic researchers at the Smithsonian Institution. The purpose of this blog is to inform the public concerning research in the Arctic and Subarctic, with a focus on issues affecting circumpolar communities, both past and present, and the ecosystems they inhabit. This will include archaeological, anthropological, ecological, and climatological research. Much of the content of the blog will be provided by members of the NMNH Arctic Studies Center and its Research Associates and Collaborators, although guest bloggers will also be invited to discuss current issues and their research in the Arctic. Current news from the Arctic and announcements of research, outreach events, and professional conferences will also be an ongoing portion of this blog. The overarching goal will be outreach by a community of researchers who work in the north, in order to educate the general public about the importance of the Arctic and Subarctic to our understanding of humanity’s past and the future of our planet.
