9:00 - 10:00 Standardized Ice Watch Observations:
Moderator led discussion on observations in need of standardization, such as ice cores, with the aim to identify common talking points for break - out groups. unified approaches for sea-ice observations – focus on in - situ / ship-based work. Motivation: Challenges & path to implementation
09:00 Antarctic (Petra) - Identification of parameters currently not/rarely observed and potential remedies, such as AAD's need for ice strength data
09:15 Arctic (Jenny Hutchings) Status of IceWatch standardization
09:30 General Discussion (Moderators Hajo Eicken / Don Perovich)
10:00 -10:30 Other Possible Standardized Observations
Discussion (Hajo/Don): Immediate next steps; Identify one or two leads to be pursued to implementation seeking CliC sponsorship. Melding observational data and numerical modelling
10:45 - 11:00 Data Archiving and Cyberinfrastructure
*Hongie - cyberinfrastructure
*Jenny Hutchings - Feed observational data into operational centers – Implementation roadmap
11:15 - 12:00 Integrating models and data
11:15 Sea Ice Prediction Network (Walt)- dataset compilation for modelers/forecasters, targeted observation etc.
11:30 Sea Ice Operational Forecasting needs - Nick Hughes and TBD for the Antarctic?
12:00 Discussion of linkages between Arctic and Antarctic (Steve/Don)
*Nick Hughes - Synchronization with International Ice Charting Group
