Barrow Sea Ice Webcam

The Sea Ice Group at the Geophysical Institute at UAF hosts a sea ice webcam in Barrow, AK. According to the website, this webcam helps “establish a longer-term record of key dates in the seasonal evolution of the sea-ice cover, such as: onset of fall ice formation, formation of a stable ice cover, onset of spring melt, appearance of melt ponds, beginning of ice break-up in early summer, removal or advection of sea ice during the summer months.”

This is great for the classroom (both in Alaska and around the world) because students can see real-time images of what changes are occurring in the sea ice.
