The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) are currently accepting abstract submissions for the POLAR2018 Conference, which will convene 15-26 June 2018 in Davos, Switzerland.

The theme of the POLAR2018 conference is Where the Poles Come Together and will include:

  • SCAR and IASC/ Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) Business and Satellite Meetings (15-18 June 2018),
  • SCAR/IASC Open Science Conference (19-23 June 2018), and
  • SCAR Delegates Meeting and 2018 Arctic Observing Summit (24-26 June 2018).

Conveners of the following session invite abstract submissions:

Category OS Ocean, Sea Ice Session Number: OS-4

Session Title: Sea ice modeling and prediction

Session Description: We solicit contributions on the past, present and future evolution of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, based on model simulations, on observations, or on a combination of both. These include studies that make use of new data that have recently become available for sea-ice research through the CMIP6 suite of model simulations, through large ensemble simulations, and through new observational data sets and algorithms. We also specifically invite contributions that examine the relationship of sea ice and iceberg model simulations and operational products such as ice charts. In addition to the analysis of the evolution of sea ice over the 20th and 21st century, we invite submissions that provide an in-depth analysis of the relationship between individual models, individual observational data sets and between models and observational data, including products from operational ice services. The time scales of these studies may range from a few days for direct navigational use to centuries for understanding long-term climate evolution. In addition, studies examining the role of internal variability for the comparison of sea ice simulations with observations and with other model simulations and for sea ice projections are also encouraged. Regarding new observational records, we in particular invite studies that use satellite data for ice detection and classification (ice class, thickness, drift, stage of development, etc.) and for manual and automated production of ice charts. Keywords: Arctic, Antarctic, sea ice, iceberg, modeling, data.
