The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces the call for contributions for the 2016 Sea Ice Outlook July report (based on May and June data). We encourage all past contributors to submit Outlooks for this report and we also hope to see new participants.

The Sea Ice Outlook provides an open process for those interested in Arctic sea ice to share ideas. The monthly reports contain a variety of perspectives—from advanced numerical models to qualitative perspectives from citizen scientists. A post-season report will provide an in-depth analysis of factors driving sea ice this summer as well as explore the scientific methods for predicting seasonal conditions. The June report can be found at:

We are accepting pan-Arctic outlooks, regional outlooks (including those specific to the Alaska region), and informal contributions.

Contributors should review the detailed submission guidelines at:

All submissions should be sent to: sio2016 [at]

Submission deadline: 6:00 p.m. (AKDT) on Monday, 11 July 2016 (firm). Contributions received after the deadline will be posted to the website but may not be incorporated into the Outlook report or discussion.
