APNEP Science & Technical Advisory Committee Publications

Technical Issue Paper Series 

As stated under Committee Procedures within the STAC’s Operational Guidelines, the STAC works proactively, when possible, to strengthen the scientific and technical foundations of APNEP activities.  One of the proactive products listed therein are “White Papers” to facilitate APNEP scientific communication and outreach.  Rather than creating a comprehensive white paper to begin communication and outreach for a particular topic, however, the STAC has opted to publish “technical issues papers” to begin the dialog.  The papers, whose length are generally on the order of one to two pages, are designed to introduce APNEP stakeholders to science and other technical topics for which the STAC in their advisory capacity are recommending a change from the status quo.  All papers have a common format: a position, followed by a supporting statement and references.  The papers are organized under three categories: Monitoring and Modeling Tools, Management Effectiveness and Efficiency, and Forecasting. The expectation is that upon reviewing any paper, an APNEP stakeholder (e.g., Policy Board, Implementation Committee) has the option to implement the recommendations or request from the STAC a more detailed investigation into the topic (or sub-topic) in the form of a white paper. Links to access each paper follow.
