This Thursday (June 26th) I'll be talking about ice, and, better, yet, answering questions about ice at the Annapolis Cafe Scientifique. The time will 6:30 PM. Same location as usual -- Cafe 49 West. Local folks are invited, and non-local are welcome to pose questions here.
I'll also invite folks to suggest topics for me to prepare for. My sources of information on sea ice are pretty different than my audience's, so it's hard for me to tell what people have been hearing about.
Our Sea Ice Outlook guesses this year are wildly different -- 4.8 million km^2 and 6.3 million km^2. The former is above the median of contributions. The latter is the highest of all, even higher than from Watts and company. We have a third, unpublished, guess in between the two. I need to check out a couple of things before writing it up. Given the spread we're encountering ourselves, I think we're going to learn a lot this year.
