The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open webinar focused
on post-season analysis and discussion of the 2014 Sea Ice Outlook
(SIO). The SIO produces reports in June, July, and August that
synthesize a variety of predictions and perspectives on the arctic sea
ice minimum. More information about SIO, including this year's reports,
is available at: http://www.arcus.org/sipn/sea-ice-outlook.
This webinar will provide a venue for discussion of the 2014 SIO,
including processes that influenced sea ice melt this year and a review
of the differing approaches to predicting the sea ice minimum extent.
The webinar is open to all interested participants, including sea ice
researchers, students, decision-makers, and others.
The webinar is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. AKDT
(12:00-1:00 p.m. PDT, 1:00-2:00 p.m. MDT, 2:00-3:00 p.m. CDT,
and 3:00-4:00 p.m.EDT) on Thursday, 9 October 2014. More details,
including registration instructions, will be announced closer to the event.
The webinar will be archived and available online after the event.
