A report has just been published detailing the accomplishments of the NOAA Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Workshop, held at the University of Colorado, Boulder in April 2023. The Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Team organized this workshop, a group dedicated to advancing cross-OAR and NOAA-wide sea ice modeling activities that is sponsored by CPO’s Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM) and Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Programs. The report, published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, includes information on sea and lake ice knowledge shared during the workshop, future project goals and approaches, recommendations for collaborative model development, and transition opportunities to focus NOAA activities on stakeholder needs. The workshop provided a great opportunity to exchange ideas and build relationships, which will help shape NOAA’s work on sea ice modeling. The group plans to share advancements at a follow-up workshop in the future.
