Short summary
We present a quantitative network design study of the Arctic sea ice-ocean system. For a demonstration, we evaluate two idealised hypothetical flight transects derived from NASA’s Operation IceBridge airborne ice surveys in terms of their potential to improve 10-day to 5-month sea ice forecasts. Our analysis quantifies the benefits of sampling upstream of the target area and of reducing the sampling uncertainty. It further quantifies the complementarity of combining two flight transects.
