Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) team members announce the call for contributions to the 2023 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) July report. (based on May and June data).

The SIO provides an open process for those interested in Arctic sea ice to share ideas. Four monthly reports during the sea ice retreat season (June, July, August, and September) will include a variety of contributions—from advanced numerical models to qualitative perspectives from citizen scientists—as well as brief related discussions. Plans for a brief Post-Season Report, with a focus on performance of Outlooks as compared to the observed sea ice minimum, will be developed at the end of the retreat season. The 2023 SIO effort is supported with funds from NSF award #1331083.

Organizers encourage all past contributors to submit Outlooks for 2023 and we also hope to see new participants. Please feel free to distribute this announcement to others who might be interested in participating in the SIO.

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, 12 July 2023, 6:00 p.m. AKDT (Firm)
