Call for Contributions to the 2023 SIO August Report

Betsy Turner-Bogren July 28, 2023

Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) team members have announced the call for contributions for the 2023 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) August report. (Based on May, June, and July data).

See Detailed Guidelines for Contributions

Submission Deadline: 6:00 p.m. (AKDT) Wednesday, 16 August 2023 (Firm)

The SIO provides an open process for those interested in Arctic sea ice to share ideas. Four monthly reports during the sea ice retreat season (June, July, August, and September) will include a variety of contributions—from advanced numerical models to qualitative perspectives from citizen scientists—as well as brief related discussions. Plans for a brief Post-Season Report, with a focus on performance of Outlooks as compared to the observed sea ice minimum, will be developed at the end of the retreat season.  The 2023 SIO effort is supported with funds from NSF award #1331083.

We encourage all past contributors to submit Outlooks for 2023 and we also hope to see new participants. Please feel free to distribute this announcement to others who might be interested in participating in the SIO.

Contributions received after the 16 August deadline may not be fully incorporated into the Outlook report or discussion.
