REMINDER: Registration is available for the Sea Ice Prediction Network
(SIPN) open webinar entitled "Observations of Arctic Snow and Sea Ice
Thickness from Satellite and Airborne Surveys" presented by Nathan Kurtz
of NASA's Cryospheric Sciences Lab at Goddard. This one-hour webinar is
scheduled for 10:00 a.m. AKDT (11:00 a.m. PDT, 12:00 p.m. MDT,
1:00 p.m. CDT, and 2:00 EDT) on Tuesday, 5 May 2015.

Registration is required. Instructions for joining the webinar are
available online and will be sent via email following registration.
To register for the webinar, please go to:

The decline of Arctic sea ice thickness has been well documented using
multi-decadal surveys from submarine sonar data, however such data are
limited in temporal and spatial coverage. Recent technological advances
in radar and laser altimetry are now providing a means to determine the
thickness of sea ice and its snow cover over much broader scales opening
new avenues for improving seasonal sea ice predictions and enabling
studies of long-term climatological change.

This talk will focus on the current state and availability of snow and
sea ice thickness data from two operational data sets: NASA's Operation
IceBridge airborne surveys and the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2
satellite mission. The accuracy and limitations of the data sets will
also be discussed to place the utility of the data in context for use in
a variety of study areas.

This webinar is designed for the sea ice research community and others
interested in learning about the current state and availability of snow
and sea ice thickness data. While this is an open event, attendees
should be aware that discussions will be largely of a technical nature.

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