Petty study published in Earth Future, featured by NASA

ESSIC Post-doctoral Associate Alek Petty recently published a paper on forecasting summer Arctic sea ice. The paper, titled “Skillful spring forecasts of September Arctic sea ice extent using passive microwave sea ice observations,” was published in the American Geophysical Union’s Earth Future. In the study, Petty discusses the use of a new satellite-based forecasting model to better estimate Arctic Sea ice loss during the spring months.
