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 http://www.assw2021.pt.
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.
