11/19/2019 - Ice in the Beaufort Sea is reducing returns from our site at Cape Simpson. We are fluctuating between limited coverage when the ice is offshore to no data when the ice is close to shore.

Please contact us with questions or comments on any of the information contained in this web site.
Your observations and questions about what we are seeing are greatly appreciated!!
Special thanks to Wainwright, Utqiagvik, Olgoonik, and UIC.
