The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces online availability of
the 2014 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) Post-Season Report and Post-Season
Highlights. The full post-season report was developed by the SIO Action,
led by Julienne Stroeve, with input from the Sea Ice Prediction Network
(SIPN) Leadership Team and with feedback following circulation of the
draft report to the SIPN mailing list.
The SIO provides an open forum for researchers and others to share and
discuss predictions of Arctic sea ice through monthly reports in the
summer and a post-season analysis.
The organizers thank the groups and individuals that contributed to the
2014 SIO report. Contributors included a total of 88 submissions were
received from June to August, with 28 individual submissions focused on
pan-Arctic conditions for June and July, and 24 for August.
Contributions also included one regional submission in June, three in
July, and five in August.
The post-season report includes analysis of the relative skill of
various Arctic sea ice prediction models and methods and an expanded
focus this year on the spatial pattern, probability, and ice-free dates
for specific regions. The full post-season report is available at:
