Improvement in Navy’s Sea Ice Edge Position Forecasts is Documented and Publicized

A CU Boulder CIRES press release, Better Daily Sea Ice Forecasts for the Arctic Following CU-Boulder-led Innovation, was occasioned by the publication of a paper by Posey et al. titled Improving Arctic Sea Ice Edge Forecasts by Assimilating High Horizontal Resolution Sea Ice Concentration Data into the US Navy’s Ice Forecast Systems (2015). The press release highlights improvements brought about by blending a product based on National Ice Center analysts interpretation of sea ice extent with passive microwave AMSR2 sea ice concentration data. The blending technique is the same one that is used for the NOAA@NSIDC MASAM2: Daily 4 km Arctic Sea Ice Concentration product.
