AGU session announcement: Sea Ice Processes and Properties

Daniel Feltham

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2011 in San Francisco, California, USA (December 5th-9th 2011).

C33: Sea Ice Processes and Properties

Conveners: Danny Feltham and Donald Perovich

Description: Recent years have seen a dramatic reduction in the extent and thickness of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean and parts of the Southern Ocean. The inability of the IPCC AR4 climate models to accurately predict these changes suggests the need for more accurate representation in models of processes affecting sea ice. This session turns attention to sea ice (including its snow cover), and its close interactions and feedbacks with the atmosphere and ocean. Developing new understanding and improved models of sea ice processes requires input from remotely-sensed and field observations, experiments, numerical modelling, and theory. We welcome studies of the processes (physical, chemical, and biological) that affect the properties of sea ice and its mass balance.

Abstract submission is now open at and the deadline for submissions is 4 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT. You can find further details at

Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about this session.
