The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces the call for contributions for the 2017 Sea Ice Outlook July report (based on May and June data).
The Sea Ice Outlook provides an open process for those interested in Arctic sea ice to share ideas. The monthly reports contain a variety of perspectives—from advanced numerical models to qualitative perspectives from citizen scientists. A post-season report will provide an in-depth
analysis of factors driving sea ice this summer as well as explore the scientific methods for predicting seasonal conditions.
Pan-Arctic and Alaska Regional Sea Ice Extent Outlooks and any additional figures and gridded fields will be accepted for the 2017 July
Outlook. We particularly encourage submissions for the Alaska region (i.e., Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas). Submissions that include spatial forecast maps are encouraged. We are also accepting pan-Antarctic sea ice extent of the September monthly mean.
We encourage all past contributors to submit Outlooks this year and we also hope to see new participants!
