2014 Sea Ice and Climate Modeling Forum Workshop Report

Description

This workshop brought together a representative large fraction of active sea-ice modelers. This allowed for a very constructive discussion that will in particular inform the CMIP6 modeling activities related to sea ice. This workshop was key for defining sea-ice variables for CMIP6, which will allow for a more in-depth analysis of sea ice from any CMIP6 experiment. The workshop participants also signaled that they would be very interested in continuing these discussions and in particular in allowing for a broader exchange of sea-ice model development ideas and issues. These will be, among others, the topic of a follow-up workshop in 2015.

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...
