A new study has been published by members of the APPLICATE consortium in the journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences (http://188.8.131.52/aas/EN/10.1007/s00376-017-6290-4#AbstractTab) in which methods from numerical weather prediction are employed to understand how the Arctic influences weather and climate in mid-latitudes. Two pathways are identified along which the Arctic influences mid-latitudes, one pronounced one over Eurasia and Eastern Europe and a secondary one over North America.

The EU Horizon 2020-funded APPLICATE project, in cooperation with the World Meteorological Organisation’s Polar Prediction Project (PPP) in occasion of the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP), the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and other partners are organising the second Polar Prediction School 2018 on weather and climate prediction in the polar regions from17 - 27 April 2018 at Abisko Scientific Research Station in Sweden.

APPLICATE liaises with the international community to design coordinated multi-model numerical experiments to understand causes and consequences of polar amplification.
APPLICATE Work Package 3 “Atmospheric and oceanic linkages” investigates the impact of Arctic sea ice on the mid-latitude atmospheric circulation using carefully designed coordinated multi-model numerical experiments. Two international meetings have now taken place in Washington DC (1-3 February 2017) and Aspen (11-16 June 2017) resulting in the development of a new Model Intercomparison Project (MIP) for the 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6).
