Event details

The satellite meeting will host presentations and discussion of the latest scientific developments in sea ice observation, model simulations, theory, and impacts on weather and climate. This would also include the polar ocean and atmosphere as they are affected by sea ice. The purpose of this meeting is that it offers a more informal forum for discussion among scientists.
