2019 SIMIP workshop at the IGS International Symposium on Sea Ice at the Interface, Winnipeg, Canada

A half-day SIMIP workshop will be held on, Sunday, August 18, 2019, before IGS, from 9 AM to 12:30 PM, in the GatewayRoom at the Fort Garry Hotel, to discuss ongoing SIMIP analysis in the target groups and possible collaborations on papers.

Note that for inclusion in the AR6 report, papers need to be accepted by September 30th 2020. To be included in the 2nd draft of the AR6 report, papers need to be submitted by Dec 31 2019. Please email all your submitted and accepted papers of possible relevance to AR6 to as soon as possible. Confidentiality is ensured. Please also email Dirk Notz directly about any AR6 relevant sea ice results you expect to be published by the 30th of September, so he can make space for those results while writing the sea ice section.

Agenda for 2019 SIMIP workshop, Sunday, August 18, 2019, 9 AM to 12:30 PM, in the GatewayRoom at the Fort Garry Hotel.

 Session 12.1, Sea ice in CMIP6 models, Monday, August 19th, 9:30am-12:10pm Selkirk Ballroom

We also have a dedicated SIMIP session at the IGS Sea ice meeting in Winnipeg (Session 12.1 Sea Ice in CMIP6 models), where we hope you will submit your CMIP6 sea ice results (https://www.igsoc.org/symposia/2019/winnipeg/)

Chairs: Alexandra Jahn, University of Colorado, USA; Marika Holland, University of Colorado, USA; Elizabeth Hunke, Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA; François Massonnet, Université catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium; Dirk Notz, MPI-M, Hamburg, Germany; Julienne Stroeve, University of Manitoba, Canada / University College London, UK / NSIDC, USA; Bruno Tremblay, McGill University, Montreal, Canada; Martin Vancoppenolle, Sorbonne Université, CNRS, Paris, France

We invite sea ice modeling contributions, in particular ones that use large-scale model simulations and address the questions formulated within the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6) – endorsed Sea-Ice Model Intercomparison Project (SIMIP). These questions include: 1) What are the physical processes that affect sea ice changes? 2) Why do model simulations differ from each other? 3) Why do model simulations differ from the observational record? 4) What can we do to reduce these differences to obtain a better understanding and achieve better projections? Topics of interest include but are not limited to, model evaluation, analyses, intercomparisons, or other sea-ice related science carried out with Earth System Models or Climate Models, or with other methods that help advance the understanding of the output from these large-scale models in relationship to the real world.
