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).
ECMWF has begun to generate an extended two-year global dataset to support the World Meteorological Organization’s Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP). The start of production was timed to coincide with the official launch of YOPP in Geneva, Switzerland, on 15 May.
The European Commission, EASME, is organising a climate and Earth system modelling workshop (hereinafter referred as "workshop") for exploiting synergies across four H2020 projects (APPLICATE, Blue-Action, CRESCENDO and PRIMAVERA) and incorporating research outcomes from a selected number of relevant FP7 projects around the topic: Evaluating climate and Earth system models at the process level.
The CSLC is looking to hire a researcher with expertise in glacier and ice shelf modelling. The scientist will work with others in a team to characterize Antarctic glaciers and assess their instability.
Rapid change in polar regions necessitates global response
GENEVA 15 MAY, 2017 _ A concerted international campaign to improve predictions of weather, climate and ice conditions in the Arctic and Antarctic has been launched to minimize the environmental risks and maximize the opportunities associated with rapid climate change in polar regions and to close the current gaps in polar forecasting capacity.
Start date: 1 October 2017
Title: Turbulent processes in the Arctic : role of the subgrid-scale variability at the marine surface due to sea ice.
The Faculty of Biosciences, Fisheries and Economics, UiT The Arctic University of Norway in cooperation with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) announces a vacant position for a Project Manager to manage the activities of APPLICATE and INTERACT projects.
