New article in Annals of Glaciology


A new ICElab research article was just published in the journal Annals of Glaciology. The paper was led by Randy Scharien, and co-authoured by ICElab graduate students Becky Segal and Sasha Nasonova, as well as researchers at University of Calgary and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). The article outlines a new approach to predict the susceptibility of the Arctic sea ice cover to spring melt several months in advance, using satellite images from the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-1 satellite. This work contributes to improved seasonal sea ice predictions for safe Arctic marine routing and ecosystem preservation, and marine studies concerned with regional variations in ice melting rates from year to year.
