The SICCI project team had a meeting to kick-off its sea ice drift activities. Hosted at IFREMER (Brest, France), the two-days workshop was aiming at reviewing and consolidating the plans and objectives for the investigations. The methodology to perform algorithm intercomparison was discussed, as well as the design of the Round Robin Data Package (RRDP). These will be further documented in a Product Validation Plan (due end of April 2016). The first results of the algorithm intercomparison are expected by Fall 2016... stay tuned!
The SICCI sea ice drift EO team is Thomas Lavergne and Signe Aaboe (MET Norway), Fanny Ardhuin (IFREMER), Leif Toudal Pedersen and Gorm Dybkjær (DMI), Roberto Saldo (DTU-Space), Thomas Hollands and Jakob Griebel (AWI), Stefan Muckenhuber and Natalia Ivanova (NERSC), and Juha Karvonen (FMI).
