POLAR2018 is a unique joint event organized by the
Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR and the
International Arctic Science Committee IASC, which will take place
in Davos, Switzerland, from 15 - 26 June 2018 with the open
science conference from 19 - 23 June; see http://www.polar2018.org
for general information.
Following up with our first invitation on September 27 we would
like to encourage you to submit your presentation to the
conference session entitled "The role of snow on sea ice for
sea-ice parameter retrieval and variability".
We invite studies dealing with in situ observations, with
retrieval from satellite observations, modeling and combinations
thereof for snow parameters on sea ice. We also invite studies on
methods for quantifying the influence of (unknown) snow properties
on the satellite retrieval of sea-ice parameters, on reducing the
noise, improving the accuracy of retrieved sea-ice parameters due
to snow properties, and related studies.
We are looking very much forward to shape an interesting session
based on the mixture of your oral and poster
presentations. Please submit until November 1 under http://www.polar2018.org/abstracts.html!

The Cluster of Excellence "Integrated Climate System Analysis and
Prediction" (CliSAP) is a joint effort of Universität Hamburg and
its partners, supported by the German Research Foundation. CliSAP is
the nucleus of the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability
(CEN). The CEN combines expertise from the natural and social sciences
and unites nine institutes and research centers at Universität Hamburg.
