The CanSISE network will hold a number of network wide and regional events over the course of its lifespan. These meetings will serve as opportunities for network members to meet each other in person, review progress to date, present current research, and organize future collaborative efforts.
The 2017 CanSISE Workshop took from Nov 01-03 in Victoria BC. Our final full network workshop included more than 30 speakers covering CanSISE Deliverables 1-4, and the CanSISE Network Enhancement Initiative, North2Warm.
This workshop focused primarily on recent observational work to help advance Canada’s capacity to predict sea ice and snow on seasonal and longer timescales.
