ASSW2021 - Call for Abstracts- Arctic Lake and River Ice Monitoring and Modeling Session

Homa Kheyrollah Pour-2

Dear Colleagues:

Please consider submitting an abstract to the Arctic Science Summit Week 2021 (ASSW2021) session titled ID 50. Arctic Lake and River Ice Monitoring and Modeling under the theme “Observing the Arctic”. The upcoming ASSWS2021 will be held online , from March 23-26, 2021. Submission deadline is November 30, 2020, and abstracts can be submitted at

  ID 50. Arctic Lake and River Ice Monitoring and Modeling
Lake and river ice cover are major components of the cryosphere, and their phenology affects both natural processes and human activities. With such a large spatial coverage, ice regimes of these water bodies comprise an important part of the cryosphere and of Arctic hydrological systems. Climate warming influences not only water temperatures, but also physical changes, including stratification, turbidity, ice formation, phenology, and biogeochemical changes. Understanding these changes and their role and response to current climate warming has been limited by several factors including lack of detailed observations. Integrated remote sensing and modelling studies grounded in in-situ field data are greatly needed to improve observational and predictive capacity for monitoring their response to climate change. We invite contributions that address modelling or monitoring of lake and river ice, and their interaction with the broader Arctic system. Studies that integrate observational and modelling studies or introduce new sensor technologies to expand monitoring capacities through community partnerships are of particular interest.
