Sea ice at EGU 2019. Rapid changes in sea ice: processes and implications

Danny Feltham

Dear Colleagues, 

 

Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session on sea ice at the 2019 EGU General Assembly.

 

Rapid changes in sea ice: processes and implications CR6.1/CL2.14/OS1.18

 

Abstract deadline: January 10th

Conference: April 12-17 2019, Vienna Austria

 

Session description: The rapid decline of Arctic sea ice in the last decade is a dramatic indicator of climate change. In fact, the last 12 years (2007 to 2018) have seen lower Arctic summer sea ice extents than in the previous 29 years of satellite records. While the changes in the Southern Ocean sea ice cover have not been so dramatic, there has been a redistribution of sea ice and a slight net increase in recent years, with the low of 2016 being a dramatic exception. Climate projections suggest a reduction of the sea ice cover in both poles, with the Arctic becoming seasonally ice free in the latter half of this century.

   The scientific community is investing considerable effort in organising our current knowledge of the physical and biogeochemical properties of sea ice, exploring poorly understood sea ice processes, and forecasting future changes of the sea ice cover.

   In this session, we invite contributions regarding all aspects of sea ice science and sea ice-climate interactions, including snow and sea ice thermodynamics and dynamics, sea ice-atmosphere and sea ice-ocean interactions, sea ice biological and chemical processes, and sea ice models. A focus on emerging processes and implications is particularly welcome.

 

We hope to see you in Vienna!

 

Danny Feltham, Andrew Wells, Daniela Flocco
