The American Meteorological Society and the Committee on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography are currently accepting abstract submissions for the 15th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography. This conference will convene 19-23 May 2019 in Boulder, Colorado.

Conveners of the following session invite abstract submissions:

SEESSION: Reducing Sea Ice Projection Uncertainty through Increased Process-Understanding

Sea ice projections from global climate models for both polar regions show a large inter-model spread, as a result of model and internal variability uncertainty. In this session, conveners solicit contributions that aim to reduce the sea ice projection uncertainty through in-depth analysis of Arctic and/or Antarctic sea ice simulations from global climate models. Contributions that make use of new sea ice model output from CMIP6 and/or are the result of SIMIP are particularly encouraged. Topics of interest include new process-based metrics or emergent constraints to assess, and potentially weight, sea ice simulations, new sea ice model developments that show an impact on sea ice projections on climate timescales, and quantification of the contribution of internal variability to the projection spread.
