Arctic Sea Ice Reduction: the Evidence, Models, and Global Impacts I

Event Type: Lectures/Panels/Discussions

When: 22 September 2014 to 23 September 2014

Where: London, United Kingdom

More information:


This meeting explores the recent, rapid Arctic sea ice reduction. We will discuss the evidence for change, the inability of our climate models to predict these changes, the processes responsible for sea ice reduction and improved representation of these processes in climate models, and the impacts of sea ice change on local and global weather and climate. Scientific discussion is organized by Professor Daniel Feltham, Dr Sheldon Bacon, Dr Mark Brandon and Professor (Emeritus) Julian Hunt FRS.

Biographies of the organizers and speakers will be made available shortly. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.

This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend. There are a limited number of places and registration is essential. An optional lunch is offered and should be booked during registration.
