Workshop on Sea Ice Observation and Modelling
Thursday 19 April 2018
Location Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China


  • College of Global Change and Earth System Science, Beijing Normal University (GCESS, BNU)
  • Frontier Center on Polar Environment and Climate Change, Ministry of Education.

Date: 19 April 2018

Place: Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China

The programme and list of participants will be available after the registration is closed.


The sea ice covers of the polar oceans are a critical element of the global system. Arctic sea ice extent has been steadily declining in recent decades while Antarctic sea ice extent has in general changed far less dramatically than Arctic ice. Sea ice observations, remote sensing and modeling are critical to improveour understanding of the changes that are occurring to the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice cover. The objectives of this workshop are to discuss cross-cutting issues in sea ice observations, remote sensing and modelling and how deficiencies of current systems can be more efficiently addressed.

  • General topics considered appropriate for this workshop include:
  • Sea ice observations and uncertainties
  • Remote sensing capabilities for sea ice
  • Sea ice model parameterizations and coupling to ocean and atmosphere models
  • Sea ice data assimilation (methods and results)
  • Verification approaches for sea-ice analysis and forecast

The workshop will be organized around keynote and contributed presentations with ample time for discussion. As the number of participants is limited, please provide a short abstract of oral presentation (15 minutes) in the registration form. Posters are welcome to presented during the workshop.
