Optimized arctic observations for improving weather forecast in the northern sea route

This item was filled under Climate
The Northern Sea Route could be an attractive shipping route during Arctic ice-free periods; however, the decline in sea-ice extent could also cause severe weather phenomena, which could disturb ship navigation in turn. The sparse observational network over the Arctic Ocean makes weather and sea-ice forecasts less accurate and increases uncertainties. However, a new article suggests that the quality of weather and sea-ice forecasts can be improved by optimizing the Arctic-observing network....
