Jim, I understand now. Phil did leave out the lots of data part. I think the message has come across now that it's great to have everything out there. This could lead to a whole new discussion, but the availability and serving of data is a big challenge. From the model side, we prefer to use a binary format known as netCDF, which is self-describing with coordinate information, etc. and numerous software tools can read; while the observational community often prefers ascii/text formats. Larry mentioned the comma separated format. Neven, the melt ponds as a predictor was new work to me. I need to read the paper. I suspect there is something else going on in the prediction framework, but I can't say for sure.

Thanks Neven for your presentation yesterday. I'm a sea ice model scientist and I'm attending the meeting. For some reason the free signup was not available yesterday, but was today. Not sure if econnexus saw the last discussion after Larry's mention, but the consensus seemed to be that Neven said both "lots of plots" and "lots of data". I look forward to some fun discussion.
