The spring issue of the YOPP newsletter PolarPredictNews #06 is now available.

A special issue in the Journal of Geophysical Research entitled ‘Bridging Weather and Climate: Subseasonal-to-Seasonal (S2S) Prediction' is open for submissions from May 1, 2018 to April 29, 2019. The special issue has been initiated by the S2S working group.

In a paper now published in Geophysical Research Letters, British climate scientists Jonny Day and Kevin Hodges find that Arctic warming will increase both the number and intensity of storms in Arctic summer.

The MOSAiC team invites you to the upcoming "Advancing MOSAiC Science" workshop from May 28th - June 1st 2018 at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam, Germany. The aim of the workshop is to continue strengthening the links between MOSAiC science objectives and the specific plans for observing, modeling, and synthesis activities. We invite participation from MOSAiC participants, partners, and stakeholders.

With great pleasure we announce the launch of a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) on Hydroclimatic Extremes in the prominent Journal Advances in Water Resources (CiteScore: 4.53, 5-yr Impact Factor: 4.37).

The Sixth Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) panel has endorsed a set of experiments designed by APPLICATE Work Package 3 (WP3) on Arctic-midlatitute linkages aimed at investigating the causes and consequences Polar amplification.

Weather data collected by radiosondes launched in the Arctic in February and March 2018 as part of the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) are feeding into ECMWF forecasts.

A framework for connecting physically distributed data centres into a unified unit has been implemented and put in operation for APPLICATE. This provides mechanisms for documenting data, searching for data, accessing data, transforming data and visualising data. The APPLICATE Data Portal and accompanying services are available through

The EGU General Assembly 2018 (EGU18) in Vienna will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting between the 8 and the 13 April covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. EGU18 aims to provide a forum where scientists can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. With just three weeks to go until the EGU General Assembly 2018 we want to flag the many contributions from APPLICATE team members and events relevant for our community.

APPLICATE and YOPP will host a panel discussion at the upcoming European Geosciences Union’s General Assembly 2018 (EGU18) in Vienna on the topic of Arctic observations for better weather and climate predictions. The session will take place on Monday 9 April 2018 starting at 19:00 in room 2.31 of the conference venue (Austria Center Vienna).
