*Dr. Craig Evanego* from the National Ice Center in Washington DC, will be giving a seminar on Tuesday, December 13 as a part of the ingoing NOAA Great Lakes Seminar Series.

Please find details of his talk listed below.

Title: "The role of Great Lakes ice climatology in operational ice analysis and forecasting"

Speaker: *Dr. Craig Evanego*, National Ice Center <http://www.natice.noaa.gov/>, Washington, D.C.

Date: Tuesday, December 13

Time: 2:30 PM

Location: Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, 2205 Commonwealth Blvd, Ann Arbor

Abstract:
The accurate analysis and prediction of ice cover in the Great Lakes is important for safety of commercial navigation and Coast Guard winter operations. The North American Ice Service (NAIS), a collaborative effort between the U. S. National Ice Center and the Canadian Ice Service, generates ice analysis of the Great Lakes twice each week, as well as 15- and 30-day forecasts of Great Lakes ice conditions and a 90-day Great Lakes Seasonal Ice Outlook. Ice climatology plays a large role in operational ice analysis and forecasting, and ongoing research in ice climatology is constantly improving our ability to analyze and predict ice conditions in the Great Lakes. This seminar will examine some of this ongoing research and suggest future research possibilities for improving ice analysis and prediction for the Great Lakes region. Additionally, an overview of the relationship between ice climatology research performed at GLERL and operational ice analysis and forecasting efforts of the NAIS will be presented.
