To meet the growing societal need for young scientists trained in the area of weather and climate prediction, a 10-days Polar Prediction School for early-career scientists from around the world will be held in Spring 2018.
The school will be organised in the frame of the EU-funded APPLICATE project and the World Meteorological Organisation’s Polar Prediction Project (PPP) in occasion of the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP).
Topics of the school will include a combination of polar weather and climate theory lectures with exercises on modelling and field meteorology techniques. Each of these components forms a crucial pillar of the prediction problem, and the motivation for combining these is to provide participants with a complete overview of the components required to understand and predict polar weather.
The Polar Prediction School 2018 will provide quality training for the next generation of polar scientists, training materials publicly available and the opportunity for early career scientists to build their networks and to approach senior scientists expert in the field of polar climate.
