      I have received the following announcement:

      _______________________________________________
      The COMET Program is pleased to announce the publication of Sea Ice and
      Products and Services of the National Ice Center

      (http://www.meted.ucar.edu/oceans/seaice/).

      The Arctic region has become a focal point in the effort to understand and
      prepare for global climate change. The diminishing sea ice thickness and
      extent observed over the past decade is widely expected to result in
      increased maritime activity in the region. However, operating ships in
      and around sea ice raises significant safety considerations. The National
      Ice Center monitors and charts the sea ice environment and provides
      support for operations in and near sea ice infested waters.

      This two-hour module examines sea ice, icebergs, and the products and
      services of the National Ice Center and the North American Ice Service.
      Topics include climatology and current trends in sea ice extent and
      thickness; the development, classification, and drift of sea ice and
      icebergs; fractures, leads and polynyas; and the satellite detection of
      sea ice using visible, infrared, and microwave sensors.
