In recent decades, Arctic warming has amplified markedly and sea ice has shrunk drastically, leading to an emergent forcing that possibly drives anomalous atmospheric circulation and weather patterns beyond the Arctic.

The 2018 Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) will be held 24-26 June 2018, immediately following POLAR 2018, in Davos, Switzerland.

Ice service provision is a crucial element of safe and efficient operations in polar regions. The master and officers of any vessel sailing in potentially ice-covered waters require good, accurate and complete weather and sea-state forecasts as well as hydrographic information for the best possible analysis of sea-ice conditions to enable considered route planning. It is therefore vital that the right information reaches the right audience at the right time.

Retreating permafrost coasts threaten the fragile Arctic environment,The EU project Nunataryuk will determine the effects of permafrost thaw on Earth’s coldest shorelines

The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open meeting to be held during the 2017 American Geophysical Union (AGU) fall meetings in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The meeting is on Tuesday, 12 December from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. (CST)

The Data Publisher for Earth and Environmental Science PANGAEA hosted by the German Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research offers to serve as a data hub for the Year of Polar Prediction. YOPP-relevant data can now be submitted to the PANGAEA database where it will be flagged as a 'YOPP' data set. Data archived at PANGAEA will then be harvested from the YOPP Data Portal metadata base.

Submission of abstracts to the session "Clouds and precipitation in the Polar Regions: sources, processes and impacts"at the 2018 EGU General Assembly (Vienna, 8?13 April 2018) are now invited:

We would like to let you know that the first edition of the 'WWRP Polar Prediction Project YOPP Modelling Plan’ is now published. The document summarizes plans for modelling work to be carried out as part of the Year of Polar Prediction.
