This workshop aims to build on a series of successful workshops by the IICWG Data Assimilation Working Group to advance international capabilities for sea ice prediction on timescales from hours to a season. The focus of the workshop is to discuss cross-cutting issues in sea ice modelling and assimilation and how deficiencies of current systems can be more efficiently diagnosed and addressed.

General topics considered appropriate for this workshop include:

  • Sea ice observations and uncertainties
  • Sea ice data assimilation (methods and results)
  • Sea ice model parameterizations and coupling to ocean and atmosphere models
  • Verification approaches for sea-ice analyses and forecasts
  • Recent research to sea ice operation transfer
  • Automated predictions systems

The workshop will be organized around a few keynote and contributed presentations with ample time for discussion. As the number of participants is limited, please provide a short abstract (or motivation for attending) in the registration form. As attendees are encouraged to make a contribution, please specify your preference for oral or poster presentation.

For this 10th event, the workshop will be held in Toulouse and Montréal simultaneously via video conferences facilities. Participants are asked to mention in which place they will physically attend the workshop.

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 June 2020

Tuesday 20 October 2020
