The Pacific Arctic Group (PAG) is a group of institutes and individuals having a Pacific perspective on Arctic science. Organized under the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the PAG has as its mission to serve as a Pacific Arctic regional partnership to plan, coordinate, and collaborate on science activsities of mutual interest. The four PAG principle science themes are climate, contaminants, human dimensions and structure and function of Arctic ecosystems. The PAG membership is led by an Executive Committee consisting of a Chair, Vice Chair, one Executive Member and the Project Coordinator. The general membership of the PAG may form project groups to address specific issues linked to the PAG objectives. The Project Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the efforts of the project groups and represents the project groups on the Executive Committee. The general membership consists of at least one member of each country or institution with interest in the PAG zone of interest. Members are chosen to represent regional variety and breadth of scientific expertise required in PAG. The Executive Committee, Project Coordinator and project groups are supported by a small Secretariat which is located on a rotating basis between member countries. The Secretariat: provides administrative support for the functioning of the PAG; provides technical science support; organizes PAG meetings; records decisions of the PAG; undertakes a professional communications function for the PAG; provides a central point for communications to and from the PAG; and undertakes other matters as required.
