IGS’19 – Sea Ice at the Interface

IGS co-hosts a sea ice symposium every 5 years. The Centre for Earth Observation (University of Manitoba) is excited to be hosting the first to be held in Canada.

Senior Canada-150 Research Chair

Climate Forcing of Sea-Ice

University of Manitoba

Dr. Stroeve’s research looks at satellite and in situ data, climate models, Indigenous knowledge and community-based monitoring to improve our understanding of the climate forcing of sea ice and how changes in sea ice contribute to the large-scale changes in atmospheric conditions and freshwater marine coupling of the Arctic Ocean. Through the Canada-150 program she will examine coupling between atmosphere, marine, terrestrial and glacial reservoirs of freshwater and how changes couple across these sources, providing insight into large-scale weather and ocean circulation patterns, livelihoods of coastal communities, and marine activities.
