Analog Forecasting of Arctic Sea Ice

Arctic sea ice has declined dramatically during the last few decades. Estimating the maximum and minimum sea ice extent, before it occurs, is a important tool for developing and implementing near-term public policy.

ICEX 2018

ACCAP was involved in ICEX2018.  Brettschieder’s analog forecasting technique was used in two manners, first for daily forecasts and second for historical break up match for when sea ice would deteriorate to a point where the camp was no longer usable.
