SIPN will hold an open workshop to discuss data needs for sea ice forecasting on Thursday, 17 December 2015 from 12:30-1:30 pm during the 2015 AGU Fall Meetings.
This workshop will focus on how SIPN and others who provide data observations can best serve the needs of the forecasting community. The goal of the workshop is to help identify data needs for model initialization and verification, which available data products are particularly useful, what improvements to existing data products would make for better utilizations, what additional observations are needed, and how limited spatial scale data from ship observations etc. are being used.
The workshop will be held at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis on the 2nd floor in Foothill Room E. Lunch will be provided for meeting participants who RSVP to Betsy (betsy [at] arcus.org) by Monday, 7 December 2015.
