The SCAR/CliC funded Antarctic Sea ice Processes and Climate (ASPeCt) working group held a meeting together with the Arctic Sea Ice Working Group (ASIWG) in Hobart, Australia at the end of the IGS conference in March 2014. The meeting’s aim was two-fold one, to bring together the two groups focused on sea ice processes to coordinate ideas and activities, and two, to discuss ASPeCt only plans.
The meeting closed with the presentation and discussion of the ASPeCt Science Plan. Based on this discussion the Science Plan as well as the sea ice review paper, are expected to be completed in 2014. For more information please go to http://aspect.antarctica.gov.au/
