April 1, 2020: Three Short Talks by Shaun W. Bell, Margaret "Peggy" Sullivan, and David A. Strausz III (University of Washington Joint Institute for the Study of Atmosphere and Ocean)
- Shaun will giving a short talk on "Improved Biophysical Observations from a Profiling Moored Observing Platform in the Southeast Bering Sea". Exploring 4 years of Prawler data at Mooring site M2 and the insights this platform provides.
- Peggy will be giving a short talk on "Changing Seasons in the Chukchi Sea MIZ: a look at multiple years of ice draft from moorings near Icy Cape, Alaska". Sonarice data tells a story of the dynamics of seasonal ice formation, and illustrates a trend toward decreasing winter ice-cover.
