Speaker: Zack Labe, Colorado State University

Unlike the passive microwave satellite record of Arctic sea ice extent, long-term observations of sea ice thickness remain quite limited. In this webinar, I’ll discuss the different methods (satellite instruments and model simulations) of observing sea ice thickness in order to understand changes in the recent Arctic amplification era. I’ll also highlight the large-scale environmental and societal consequences of a thinning Arctic sea ice cover.
