Space-borne observations for detecting and forecasting sea ice cover extremes, June 2015 to May 2018 (EU Horizon 2020 program)

The main objective of SPICES is to develop new methods to retrieve sea ice parameters from existing (and imminent) satellite sensors to provide enhanced products for polar operators and prediction systems, specifically addressing extreme and unexpected conditions.

SPICES is in close cooperation with the ESA CCI project, which aims for most consistent time series of sea ice climate variables, while SPICES aims for increased temporal and spatial resolution with best performance on most recent data.
