Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
Mary-Beth Schreck, Sea Ice Program Leader, National Weather Service Alaska Sea Ice Program
Tuesday, 24 November 2020
11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. AST
The Alaska Sea Ice Program (ASIP) is a unique program within the National Weather Service. The program has seen many changes over the years, including evolving from hand drawn sea ice analyses using a light box to GIS-based digital analyses. Mary-Beth will take a look at where the program started, where they are now and what they do, and where they hope to be in the future. She will also look at some times when sea ice in Alaska waters has caused problems for both Alaska residents and others operating within Alaskan waters.
