Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


You are invited to the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee's (IARPC) June Sea Ice Collaboration Team Meeting that will take place June 24th from 1:00 - 2:00 pm ET (9 am AKT). The theme of the meeting is Arctic Sea Ice Thickness: It's All about Perspective. The meeting will feature 2 speakers: Nathan Kettle and Sinead Farrell

Developing methods to accurately evaluate and communicate sea ice thickness is important for a wide range of applications, from the sustainability and safety of local communities to basin-wide predictions of sea ice conditions. Join us to learn more about the newest satellite-based observations being collected from ICESat-2 (presented by Sinead Farrell, U. Maryland) and a new sea ice notification framework being developed for coastal communities (Nathan Kettle, IARC). Participate in a series of discussions aimed at building stronger connections between the observing, modeling, and user communities.

The meeting will begin with updates from the community. We invite all meeting attendees to share announcements, recent findings (published or unpublished), ideas for collaboration, requests for future meetings, or anything that you wish to share or ask, etc.
