To reveal characteristics of sea ice variability and their relation to oceanic processes and global change mechanism, future studies were discussed on various topics. At the workshop, recent activities concerning field observations, satellite remote sensing and modeling of polar regions and Sea of Okhotsk were presented. It is suggested that we should put emphasis on construction of sea-ice database, promotion of international collaboration, and planning of multidisciplinary program.
