Sea Ice SIG

Sea ice plays an important role in high latitude and global climate systems, polar ecosystems, navigation, and interaction with structures. The sea ice research community in the UK numbers some 30 established researchers, and perhaps 10-20 postgraduate students, and is a significant resource of knowledge, experience, and talent.
