Funding is sought from RCN to conduct the 11th International Workshop on Sea Ice Modelling, Assimilation, Observations, Predictions and Verification at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (Oslo) in March 2023 (IICGW-DA-11, https://iicwg-da-11.met.no/).
The 3-day workshop aims at gathering scientific experts working towards automated and operational sea-ice forecasting in the polar regions, from a few days to a season. The goal of the workshop is to discuss cross-cutting issues in sea ice modelling, data assimilation and observations and how deficiencies of current forecasting systems can be diagnosed and addressed more efficiently. We plan the workshop to be an excellent opportunity for the Norwegian polar research community to present their expertise to the international sea-ice community.
The funds will be used to rent the venue and provide catering and refreshments.
