Summary

Speaker: Jonathan Day, University of Reading

Abstract: Unprecedented climate change in the Arctic, particularly the reduction in summer sea ice has opened up opportunities for business in diverse sectors such as fossil fuel & mineral extraction, shipping and tourism. Recent studies have indicated that sea ice is a major source of climate predictability on seasonal and longer timescales, but this potential is yet to be realized in actual prediction systems. In this talk I will discuss where we are in terms of predicting Arctic sea ice on seasonal and longer timescales, what the major sources of predictability are, and what I see as the road ahead to achieve this potential.
