Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN)

Submission Guidelines:

  1. Please use the form below to enter your information for the core requirements.
  2. In addition, we encourage you to submit related files such as:
    • A more detailed Outlook report, including discussions of uncertainties/probabilities, including any relevant figures, imagery, and references.
    • Regional Outlooks.
    • Informal contributions.
    • Full raw fields of sea ice concentration (post processed fields and/or sea ice thickness are also accepted). To submit full spatial fields, contact Ed Blanchard (ed@atmos.uw.edu) to get the password for ftp. For more information, go to www.atmos.uw.edu/sipn. To see examples and definitions of the sea ice probability, first ice-free day, and date of ice advance metrics, go to www.atmos.washington.edu/~ed/sio_metrics.

Additional information is at www.arcus.org/sipn/sea-ice-outlook.

For questions about the Sea Ice Outlook, please write to Betsy Turner-Bogren, ARCUS at betsy@arcus.org.

Submission Information
Section 1
Section 2
Starting in 2017, we are accepting both pan-Arctic and pan-Antarctic sea ice extent (either one or both) of the September monthly mean. As in 2016, we are also collecting Alaskan regional sea ice extent. For those interested, we will also accept submissions for Hudson Bay. To be consistent with the validating sea ice extent index from NSIDC, if possible, please first compute the average sea ice concentration for the month and then compute the extent as the sum of cell areas > 15%.
