Sea Ice Outlook: 2018 July Report
The 2018 July Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) for September ice conditions received a total of 39 contributions, variously based on dynamical (physics-based) models, statistical approaches, heuristic (qualitative), and mixed methods. Along with projections of total Arctic sea ice extent for September, the SIO received 9 projections of Antarctic total ice extent and 11 projections of ice extent in the Alaskan sector (combining the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas). Thank you to all the contributors!
The SIO, a product of the Sea Ice Prediction Network
Sea Ice Outlook: 2018 June Report
Thank you to the groups that contributed to this 2018 June Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) report. We received 34 contributions that include pan-Arctic predictions, of those contributions 10 also included pan-Antarctic predictions and 11 included predictions for Alaskan waters. We received one additional contribution with a regional focus on the Nares Strait.
For the Arctic, the median June Outlook value for a September 2018 sea ice extent projection is 4.6 million square kilometers with quartiles of 4.4 and 4.9 million square kilometers (See **Figure 1*
Sea Ice Outlook: 2017 Post-Season Report
The Sea Ice Outlook (SIO), a contribution to the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH), provides an open forum for researchers and others to develop, share, and discuss seasonal Arctic sea ice predictions.
2017 Submissions: Once again we want to thank all our participants in the SIO! This year we received a total of 106 submissions for the pan-Arctic September extent, two more than we received in 2016. This was a new record number of contributions, with 33 received in June, 36 in July and 37 in August. We collected Alaska

Sea Ice Outlook: 2017 August Report
Thank you to the groups that contributed to the 2017 SIO reports. For August we received 37 contributions for pan-Arctic extent predictions, nine of which also contributed Alaska regional extent predictions and 10 of which also contributed for Antarctica. We received two additional contributions for Antarctica only and two descriptive regional contributions. This August Outlook report and current conditions were coordinated by lead author Uma Bhatt (University of Alaska Fairbanks) with contributions from Edward Blanchard-Wrigglesworth (University
Sea Ice Outlook: 2017 July Report
Thank you to the groups that contributed to the 2017 June and July reports. For July we received 36 contributions for pan-Arctic extent predictions. Eight contributed Alaska regional extent predictions, 12 contributed for Antarctica, and two informal contributions were received. This July Outlook report and current conditions was coordinated by lead author James Overland (NOAA) with contributions from Edward Blanchard-Wrigglesworth (University of Washington), François Massonnet (Université Catholique de Louvain and Barcelona Super Computing Center)
