Both the Arctic and Antarctic have experienced record sea ice coverage in the last decade. The Arctic has experienced record losses, especially in summer, while the Antarctic has had expanding sea ice. I will discuss how this is possible in an era of global climate change, and what can we expect in the future.

Professor Cecilia Bitz (University of Washington) specialises in sea ice and climate interactions. Celia works with a range of mathematical tools and is keenly interested in improving sea ice models with field data. Celia received the 2013 Rosenstiel Award for Oceanography and Atmospheric Science and briefed the United States Congress on Arctic sea ice loss last March. She is visiting New Zealand on a
Fulbright scholarship while on sabbatical at the University of Otago.
