Abstract

AbstractArctic sea ice has undergone significant change with large reductions in thickness and areal extent over the historical record. Numerical models project sea ice loss to continue for the foreseeable future, with the possibility of September ice-free conditions later this century. Understanding the mechanisms behind ice loss and its consequences for the larger Arctic and global systems is important if we are to anticipate and plan for the future. To meet this challenge requires the collective and collaborative insights of scientists investigating the system from numerous perspectives. One impediment to progress has been a disconnect between the observational and modeling research communities. To advance the science requires enhanced integration between these communities and more collaborative approaches to understanding Arctic sea ice loss. Here we discuss a successful effort to further these aims; a weeklong sea ice summer camp held in Barrow Alaska in May 2016. The camp brought together twenty-five participants who were a heterogeneous mix of observers and modelers from 13 different institutions at career stages from graduate students to senior researchers. The summer camp provided an accelerated program on sea ice observations and models and also fostered future collaborative interdisciplinary activities. A dialog with Barrow community members was initiated in order to further understand the local consequences of Arctic sea ice loss. We discuss lessons learned from this activity and paths forward to advance the understanding and prediction of Arctic climate change.
