Organizers invite abstracts for the 5th Polar Prediction Workshop. This workshop will be held 7-9 May 2018 at the Agora Hydro-Quebec in Montreal, Canada.
We are announcing two PhD positions in Bergen, Norway, within the research project ALERTNESS (Advanced models and weather prediction in the Arctic: Enhanced capacity from observations and polar process representations)
The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) will in the coming years develop a common Danish dataset for use in climate adaptation – the so-called Danish Climate Atlas. As a part of this effort, a new fulltime position is established at DMI, where the successful applicant will work with regional climate modelling. The position is temporary and runs until the end of 2021.
A consortium of five Belgian universities is seeking PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and computer scientists to work in the framework of the PARAMOUR project (Decadal Predictability and vAriability of polar climate: the Role of AtMosphere- Ocean-cryosphere mUltiscale inteRactions) funded by the program EOS –The excellence of Science.
We are pleased to invite you to the 5th Polar Prediction Workshop that will be held in Montreal, Canada, on 7-8-9 May 2018. The workshop will take place at the Agora Hydro-Quebec.
Extreme weather events are commonly encompassed phenomena such as heat waves, droughts, floods and storms. In cold regions, these are augmented with snow and sea-ice related extreme events, usually triggered by anomalous atmospheric or oceanic conditions. Although extreme events are a core climate research focus, cryospheric extremes have not received much attention yet.
The Sea Ice Prediction Network South (SIPN South) is a project endorsed by the Year of Polar Prediction. SIPN South aims at making an initial assessment of seasonal sea ice forecasting capabilities around Antarctica. More information on SIPN South can be found here.
Just in time for the start of the Arctic Winter Special Observing Period a brandnew issue of the PolarPredictNews is available at http://www.polarprediction.net/news/polarpredictnews/
