NOAA Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Workshop Report Defines Priorities and Key Collaborations 

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

Sea ice loss predicted to slow in the Atlantic, says new CVP-funded research

“There is little doubt that we will see a decline in Arctic sea ice cover in this century in response to anthropogenic warming, and yet internal climate variations and other external forcings could generate considerable spread in Arctic sea ice trends on decadal timescales,” begins a newly released article by Yeager et al., in Geophysical Research Letters.

Could the melt pond fraction help predict seasonal Arctic sea ice minimums?

A recent modeling study supported by CPO’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program was published in Environmental Research Letters on May 19. The study, led by PI Jiping Liu, is titled: “Revisiting the potential of melt pond fraction as a predictor for the seasonal Arctic sea ice extent minimum.”
