Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System Webinar
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 4 May 2017
Where: Online: 10:00 - 11:00 am AKDT, 2:00 - 3:00 pm EDT
Register now to join a free webinar to recap the themes discussed at the Polar Research Board workshop Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System, and explore new findings that have emerged since the workshop took place.
The workshop, which took place in January 2016, focused on the potential mechanisms driving increases in the extent and concentration of the sea ice surrounding Antarctic from the late 1970s until 2015?increases that were not reproduced by climate models, and that came despite the overall warming of the global climate and the region. Leading scientists discussed the possible drivers of changes in Antarctic sea ice and ways to better understand the complex relationship between Antarctic sea ice and the broader ocean-climate system (summarized in the Workshop Proceedings).
The webinar will feature presentations from the chair of the workshop planning committee, Julienne Stroeve of the University of Colorado, Boulder, and from committee members Marika Holland of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, and Marilyn Raphael of the University of California, Los Angeles.
