September Sea Ice Outlook: August Update

The Sea Ice Outlook organizers decided, with input from contributors and readers, to skip an August report this year in favor of a more thorough post-season report.

However, we provided this webpage to post and share individual contributors┬╣ August outlooks; the individual outlooks are below.

We will ask for input into a post-season report in October through the SIO mailing list.

Individual Outlooks:

Arbetter and Potts

Arctic Sea Ice Blog

Barthelemy et al.

Canadian Ice Service




Msadek et al.

NCAR ensemble guess

Naval Research Lab


Wang et al.

Wu et al.
