PWagner- International Ice Charting Working Group (IICWG)


From the two topics of discussion, the first introduced the IICWG to the CliC community to see how we can forge collaborations with both groups. The IICWG includes every active sea ice charting organization and more information can be found at: This is relevant to CliC's agenda because research and development aims in the IICWG are working towards using their current and archived data towards improved data assimilation. The sea ice charting operations organizations have comprehensive data archives for areas in the Arctic and the Antarctic. The second topic of discussion focused on how we can make  CliC more relevant in the international Cryosphere research community and build better connections to other WCRP activities. A recap about the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and how we can bring in young and early career scientists to participate in CliC activities.  The first suggestion (geared towards the whole CliC community) was that we need to re-engage previous partners/members and get new scientists involved with activities that get them and keep them engaged. We have a need to promote and include young scientists to participate with CliC activities, but this also applies to senior colleagues, organizations, and groups who could benefit from collaborations forged by CliC.

The atmosphere-ocean boundary layer in which sea ice resides includes many complex processes that require a more realistic treatment in GCMs, particularly as models move toward full earth system descriptions. The primary purpose of the workshop was to define and discuss such coupled processes...
