Start / End Time: 3:20 PM / 5:00 PM (MDT)
Room: Regent, Marriott, River Tower Elevators, 4th Floor

Arctic warming has prompted widespread, and at times abrupt, local-to-regional sea and glacial ice melt with associated climatic effects emanating through the Arctic and lower latitudes. In this session, we welcome a broad array of Arctic change studies conducted over various spatial scales that apply observational and/or modeling approaches to examine satellite-era oceanic, atmospheric, and/or landscape interactions with sea and glacial ice cover. Arctic climate impacts studies, linking hotspots of melt to large-scale weather patterns, sea-level rise, or environmental change, for instance, are also welcomed.
