The CRC is a national leader in collaborative interdisciplinary research focused on the development and application of social-ecological systems science. This is informed by geographical, ecological, landscape, anthropological and systems theories including complex systems and resilience frameworks using a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches.

CRC research is underpinned by a strong record of competitive external research funding, notably through the National Science Foundation (NSF). The CRC supports active research awards though NSF’s Arctic Observation Network (AON) program, the Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems (CNH) program, and the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program.

The CRC’s research programs have produced over 65 peer-reviewed publications and the development of tools that support community resilience, notably the advancement of adaptive capacity indices (ACI) and the genesis and development of the Arctic Water Resources Vulnerability Index (AWRVI).
