Short summary
A numerical sea ice model, CICE, was used along with data assimilation to derive sea ice parameters in the region of Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay and Labrador Sea. The modelled ice parameters were compared with parameters estimated from remote-sensing data. The ice concentration, thickness and freeboard estimates from the model assimilated with both ice concentration and SST were found to be within the uncertainty of the observations except during March.
