Scientists from our cryosphere team at MET Norway are participating in the Living Planet Symposium 2022, LPS22, which is among the biggest Earth Observation conferences in the world. See some of our contributions here.
The yearly sea-ice maximum in the Arctic and minimum in the Antarctic occur in the period of February and March. With satellite data processed at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, the status of the sea-ice extrema this spring will be summarised here.
Last year, we released for the first time a new product mapping the sea-ice type in the Southern Hemisphere. The ice type classification is provided daily in the Antarctic winter period, and March 1st is the first classification of a new winter season.
