4SICE: Towards skillful subseasonal-to-seasonal sea ice prediction

4SICE is a four-year project co-funded by the Research Council of Norway and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China.

The high latitude regions have warmed faster than the global average in recent decades, leading to a dramatic decline in sea-ice extent and thickness. These sea-ice changes vastly impact the polar environment, ecosystem, and local communities - They bring about both risks and opportunities for human activities in polar regions, e.g., scientific missions, tourism, fisheries, shipping, natural resource exploitation and wildlife management.
