The deadline is approaching fast for abstract submission due on next Monday, 3 September 2018 to join the YOPP Arctic Science Workshop which will be held from 14 to 16 January in Finland, Helsinki.

The August report for the 2018 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) is now available online.

For the August report, 39 contributions were received that include pan-Arctic predictions. Of those contributions, 10 also included pan-Antarctic predictions and 11 included predictions for Alaskan waters.

For three months – from 1 July to 30 September – extensive extra observations will be carried out at numerous land stations in the Arctic, as part of YOPP-endorsed field campaigns and expeditions, and by autonomous instruments. Numerical experimentation and internationally coordinated verification activities will use the additional observations generated during SOP2 for forecast evaluation and observational impact studies.

A Changing Arctic – Dialogues from the North

The Adaptation Futures conference is an arena for gathering the global community working on all different aspects of climate change adaptation. Titled Dialogues for Solutions and for the first time taking place on the African continent (in Cape Town), this year’s conference put an accent on the need and possibility for adaptations in the Global South. The conference gathered over 1300 scientists, practitioners, business leaders and policymakers from around the world.

One of the clearest manifestations of ongoing global climate change is the dramatic retreat and thinning of the Arctic sea-ice cover.

POLAR2018 is just two weeks away! POLAR2018 is a joint event from the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR and the International Arctic Science Committee IASC organised by the WSL-Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF in Davos (Switzerland on the 15 - 26 June 2018).

The EU Project ARICE opens now a call for ship-time proposals to access the icebreakers CCGS Amundsen, RV Sikuliaq and PRV Polarstern. This call will remain open until the 5th of July 2018.

The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) invites Letters of Intent (LOI) to host the International Project Office (IPO) for their Climate and Cryosphere Core Project (CliC) beginning 1 January 2019.

The Sea Ice Prediction Network–Phase 2 (SIPN2) announces the call for contributions for the 2018 Sea Ice Outlook June report (based on May data).
