Arctic Sea Ice Conditions and Predictions

Отправлено 31 янв. 2018 г., 23:22 пользователем Igor Shevchenko

The Sea Ice Outlook (SIO), an activity of the Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN), provides an open forum for researchers and others to develop, share, and discuss seasonal Arctic sea ice predictions. The SIO produces reports in June, July, and August containing a variety of perspectives on Arctic sea ice—from observations of current conditions, to advanced numerical models, to qualitative perspectives from citizen scientists. A post-season report provides an in-depth analysis of factors driving sea ice extent in the summer and explores the scientific methods for predicting Arctic sea ice. Key highlights from the SIO 2017 Post-Season Report, released earlier this month, include discussion of 2017 Arctic weather and ice conditions; the Outlook contributions and methodologies, including regional forecasts; and sea ice extent probability maps. The report also includes discussion of contributions for forecasts of the Antarctic maxima through the "SIPN South" project.

Check the interactive map out here: http://oceaneos.org/chlorophyllmap/

See also a blog article about this with some background: http://oceaneos.org/2017/02/oceaneos-world-chlorophyll-map/. We want to this map to become an educational tool. The ocean is dynamic, some of the stories it can tell are only visible when looking at oceanic chlorophyll, invisible without the proper instruments and tools for analysis.

The NSF Arctic Data Center: A New Home for Arctic Research Data

Отправлено 17 июн. 2016 г., 15:47 пользователем Igor Shevchenko

In March 2016, the Arctic Data Center was launched and assumed preservation responsibility for Arctic research data from National Science Foundation (NSF) awards. The center serves as the NSF research community's primary repository for Arctic data preservation and data discovery, and is funded by the NSF via a five-year award. The Arctic Data Center currently lists 3,899 data sets covering data from myriad research fields, such as plant ecology (Eissenstat 2016), glacial chemistry (McConnell 2015), oceanography (Aagaard et al. 2016), and limnology (Arp), among many others...
