Workshop on sea ice Published 15.01.2010

A workshop on sea ice processes was held at the Greenland Climate Research Centre in Nuuk 11 to 15 January 2010. Here a group of sea ice researchers met to discuss the role of sea ice in regulating the air-sea exchange rates of CO2. Each researchers presented ongoing work and recent findings on various aspects of sea ice processes, ranging from the physical properties of sea ice, chemical transformations within the sea ice to microbial and algal activities in ice. Both Arctic and Antarctic sea ice was included. Consensus was reached that sea ice through its formation and melting greatly enhances the uptake of CO2 from the atmosphere to the ocean. It was decided that there is a need to combine knowledge and research at both poles in the future. Finally, a field study comparing various equipment and measuring techniques was decided to take place in Kobbefjord near Nuuk during March 2010.
