POLAR2018: Snow on sea ice

Stefan Kern-2

Dear colleagues and sea ice friends,

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.

Conveners of this session are: Stefan Kern: [hidden email], Burcu Özsoy: [hidden email], Georg Heygster: [hidden email], and Leif T. Pedersen: [hidden email]

Please find details about the program as well as deadlines here: http://www.polar2018.org/program.html

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!

Best regards,

Stefan, Burcu, Georg, and Leif
