We request that all participants pre-register to join any SIPN webinar.
Anyone with an e-mail address can register, and participation is free.

This webinar is designed for the sea ice research community and others
interested in discussion about the 2016 SIO and post season analysis.
While this is an open event, attendees should be aware that the discussions
will largely be of a technical nature.

This webinar will include a discussion of the 2016 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO)
with a focus on the lessons learned from this season, what was new this
season, and what areas could be improved for the future. Presentations
will include a review and analysis of the outlooks contributed from 2008
to 2016, discussion of the 2016 summer sea-ice conditions that lead to
the minima this year, and discussion of the SIO success and challenges
at the local scale. Time for community discussion will follow the
presentations. The speakers will be Lawrence Hamilton, University of New
Hampshire, and Edward Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, University of Washington.

Lawrence (Larry) Hamilton is a Carsey Senior Faculty Fellow and
professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire. Since 1992,
he has conducted interdisciplinary studies around the circumpolar North,
supported by a series of grants from the National Science Foundation. On
New Hampshire's statewide Granite State Poll, which interviews random
samples of 500 people four times each year, Larry has been tracking
public perceptions of science, the environment and climate. Combining
his Arctic and survey interests, some recent studies explore what the
general public knows and believes about polar regions.

Edward Blanchard Wrigglesworth is a Research Associate in Atmospheric
Sciences at the University of Washington. His research interest include
atmosphere-sea ice-ocean interactions, Arctic Sea ice predictability,
and snow on sea-ice in the Arctic. He has recently presented talks
including "Lessons from a multi-model SIO experiment" to the 2016 Polar
Predictability Workshop, "Arctic sea ice forecasting: an update from the
trenches' to the CESM Polar Climate Working Group 2016 annual meeting.

The webinar is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. AKDT (9:00
10:00 a.m. PDT, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. MDT, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CDT, and
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT) on Tuesday, 11 October 2016.

The webinar will be archived and available online after the event.
