5 May 2015 Sea Ice Prediction Network Webinar

Time: 10:00 - 11:00 am Alaska Daylight Time (Anchorage, GMT-08:00) on Tuesday, 5 May 2015.

Title: Observations of Arctic Snow and Sea Ice Thickness from Satellite and Airborne Surveys

Presenter: Nathan Kurtz of NASA's Cryospheric Sciences Lab at Goddard.

The presentation focused on the current state and availability of snow and sea ice thickness data from NASA's Operation IceBridge airborne surveys and the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2 satellite mission. The accuracy and limitations of these operational data sets was also discussed to place the utility of the data in context for use in a variety of study areas.

The webinar on "Sea Ice Modeling: Characteristics and Processes Critical for the Radiation Budget" was designed for the sea ice research community and others interested in learning about sea ice modeling from the global climate model perspective. The speaker was Elizabeth Hunke, Los Alamos National Laboratory.

This webinar provided an overview that includes topics in sea ice modeling from the global climate modeling perspective, highlighting recent development work within the Los Alamos Sea Ice Model CICE, sometimes referred to as the Community Ice CodE, to more accurately represent sea ice characteristics and processes critical for the radiation budget of the ice pack.
