Øyvind Lundesgård, Norwegian Polar Institute will talk about Sea ice draft in the northern Barents Sea: Multi-year local observations in a large-scale context

Sea ice thickness remains a crucial but elusive variable, influenced by many different processes and challenging to observe both from space and in situ. In this seminar, we explore time series of sea ice draft in the northwestern Barents Sea measured by moored instruments, and zoom out to examine various remote sensing products to contextualize these local observations. The picture that emerges is one of a highly dynamic sea ice region, heavily influenced by winds, thermal ocean forcing, interactions with the coasts, and the seasonal arrival of ice from the Transpolar Drift.

The seminar will take place at the EO group office on Thursday 19 October at 14:00. Join us in person or online (MS Teams)!
