The workshop "Extension and Improvement of the Mean Sea Level estimation in the Arctic regions using space altimetry data” was organised by International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern 15-18 June. The workshop brought together experts working with altimeter data in the Arctic in order to exchange information between the sea ice and sea level research communities. The workshop aimed to develop co-operation between the two expert groups by working together on common problems - namely sea ice and lead detection, retracking and local sea level anomaly determination. The second part of the workshop will be organized in 2016. The workshop was lead by Dr. Pierre Thibaut (CLS, sea level) and Dr. Eero Rinne (FMI, sea ice)
