This report is an output of the Arctic Freshwater Synthesis project. The project is a review of the latest scientific literature on the sources, fluxes, storage and effects of changes in freshwater resources in the Arctic. It comprises six chapters, covering the atmosphere, oceans, terrestrial hydrology, ecosystems, Arctic resources and infrastructure, and modeling. It is intended to be used by the scientific community and to develop policy recommendations for local, regional and national governments.
