Study of Environmental ARctic CHange (SEARCH) is an interdisciplinary, multiscale program, managed at the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA. Eight U.S. federal agencies participate in SEARCH, including the National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,[1] and NASA.[2]

One of the core aims of SEARCH is to understand and predict change in the arctic system. Major topics of study include sea ice, permafrost, land ice, and implications for society and policy.
