The session description is: Record low sea-ice extent is currently
observed in both the
Arctic and Antarctic, variability that is unprecedented in the
record. Warming ocean temperatures, changes in atmospheric
patterns, and frequency of synoptic systems contribute to this
predict future changes in sea ice it is necessary to understand
the complex and
coupled interactions between ice, ocean, atmosphere, and land.
representation of coupled processes and feedbacks is expected to
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
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
system (ocean, ecosystems, atmosphere, land). This session will
5-minute discussion periods after talks to facilitate dialog on
