In response to journalists and educators wanting an 'angle' on the extremely broad International Polar Year, quarterly "IPY Days" are being developed that focus on a particular aspect of polar research, and highlight current research occurring as part of IPY. The first of these will be held on September 21st and will focus on Sea Ice.
Below is a list of IPY projects that study, or are concerned with, some aspect of Sea Ice.
Their webpages contain a huge amount of information.
For direct contact with researchers, please consult this list of sea ice experts.
