In Februray 2013, APECS attended the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) 9th steering group meeting in Potsdam, Germany. We introduced APECS to the CliC community to encourage participation with young scientists and early career researchers to help with CliC's international initiatives. The revamping of the CliC organization has provided a great deal of opportunities for APECS members to get involved with addtional leadership activities and provide scientific input to the cryosphere community.
APECS members will attend the upcoming CliC Sea Ice Workshop in Tromso, Norway in June 2013 to discuss the gaps in knowledge we have with sea ice observations and the modeling community, the standardazation of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice data, and regional and large-scale modeling challenges. Approximately a quarter of participants with be young researchers who will participate in roundtable discussions with senior scientists where they will get more involved with helping to improve how we study and montior sea ice.
