Summary

Sea ice plays a critically important yet highly dynamic role in global climate, polar marine ecosystems, globalization and indigenous cultures. Ongoing dramatic changes to the sea-icescape and freshwater–marine coupling, particularly involving ice sheets, glaciers, ice shelves, sea-ice loss and continental runoff, have major implications for climate within and beyond the polar regions, environmental and ecological integrity, and regional and global socioeconomic development. This symposium presents a timely opportunity to show recent advances in our knowledge and technological capabilities in sea-ice related research. In addition, the symposium will encourage holistic discussions amongst scientists, stakeholders and policy makers regarding the most recent changes, long-term trends and variability in the sea-ice environment in both hemispheres, and how best to engage and communicate with the general public.
