AGU Fall Meeting 2017: Sea ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions in the "New" Arctic and Southern Oceans

Amy Solomon (NOAA Affiliate)

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to submit an abstract to the 2017 Fall AGU meeting session entitled:
C035. Sea ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions in the “New” Arctic and Southern Oceans
Session ID: 22340

Section/Focus Group: Cryosphere, Global Change, Atmospheric Processes, Oceanography
Session Viewer Link https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session22340


Conveners:  Amy Solomon, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO, United States, Michael Steele, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, United States and Marilyn N Raphael, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, United States

Session Description:
Record low sea-ice extent is currently observed in both the Arctic and Antarctic, variability that is unprecedented in the satellite record. Warming ocean temperatures, changes in atmospheric circulation patterns, and frequency of synoptic systems contribute to this variability. To predict future changes in sea ice it is necessary to understand the complex and coupled interactions between ice, ocean, atmosphere, and land. Improved representation of coupled processes and feedbacks is expected to advance predictive skill of polar weather and climate models, and linkages with lower latitudes. Conveners solicit papers on observational, theoretical and numerical investigations that advance a system level understanding of processes that affect sea ice extent and thickness in the Arctic and Southern Oceans by studying the interaction between ice and at least one other component of the polar system (ocean, ecosystems, atmosphere, land).

 

Confirmed Invited Speakers:

Lynne Talley, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California at San Diego

Harry Stern, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington

 

The AGU Fall Meeting will be held 11-15 December 2017 in New Orleans this year
The meeting website is: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2017/ .
The abstract submission will be open on June 26 and the deadline is August 2.

We hope to see you in New Orleans!

 

Amy Solomon, Mike Steele, Marilyn Raphael
