A new COM-funded Arctic sea ice study improves predictions of sea ice freeze-up and break-up in coastal regions by identifying local indicators.
Arctic sea ice has declined dramatically during the last few decades, posing challenges and opportunities for Alaskan residents, subsistence users, and maritime operators.
A CPO-funded study published on Nature Climate Change demonstrates how understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales.
A CPO-funded study in the Journal of Climate documents research on sea ice to understand essential processes in the climate system and other ecological systems.
