CanSISE Regional Meeting - Toronto, July 2014

The first regional meeting in Toronto for the 2014 project year was hosted at the University of Toronto on July 25th. This meeting covered updates in a sea ice research during the morning session, and a snow research updates during the afternoon.

 

Session 1 - Snow Research Updates                          
     Camille Li           Towards untangling winter sea ice-atmosphere interactions
  Matthew Pittana Comparing sea ice mass balance buoy snow depth measurements with reanalysis data
  Stephen Howell Multi-year ice replenishment in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago 1997-2013
  Christian Haas                  Arctic sea ice thickness: results from Spring 2014   
Session 2 : Sea Ice Research Updates
  Chris Derksen The Satellite Snow Product Intercomparison and Evaluation Experiment Snow Water Equivalent
  Chris Fletcher Evaluating biases in simulated snow albedo feedback in two generations of climate models
  Libo Wang Evaluating the cold climate performance of the Canadian regional and global climate models
  Chad Thackeray                                          Seasonal albedo and snow cover evolution of CMIP5 models in boreal forest regions
  Lawrence Mudry &       Adeline Bichet Observed and Modelled Northern Hemisphere Snow Trends Uncertainty and Attribution
