The melting state and movement of sea ice is hard to predict, meaning users of the ice are at risk of hazards such as slush zones and disintegration of the ice edge, and users of the sea in ice-prone waters are at risk of being trapped by moving ice. This project has brought together Canadian experts in sea ice, remote sensing, and partners involved in operational ice charting and predictions, to address the need for better sea ice observations and predictions by resolving melt induced uncertainties.
