Detailed Guidelines for Contributions

The SIO 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.

Please use the new Google-based SIO August Submission Form to submit 2021 August Outlook contributions of pan-Arctic, pan-Antarctic, and Alaskan regional September monthly mean sea-ice extent, related uncertainty/probability estimates, and the optional submissions of sea-ice extent anomaly forecasts.

Submissions that include spatial forecast maps, including estimates of Ice-Free Dates (IFD) and Sea-Ice Advance Dates (IAD), as well as any additional figures and gridded fields, will be accepted for the 2021 August Outlook via the SIPN Data Portal.

For questions, please contact Betsy Turner-Bogren, ARCUS (
