Dear APPLICATE Community
The American Meteorological Society and the Committee on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography are currently accepting abstract submissions for the 15th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography. This conference will convene 19-23 May 2019 in Boulder, Colorado.
Arctic sea ice plays a central role in the Earth’s climate. Changes in the sea ice on seasonal-to-interannual timescales impact ecosystems, populations and a growing number of stakeholders.

An open post is available for a researcher in the field of atmospheric dynamics with focus on linkages between the Arctic and Europe at the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) based in Helsinki, FInland. Duration of the contract is from February 2019 to December 2020.
Predicting weather and climate fluctuations at sub-seasonal to seasonal (S2S) time scales is of high relevance for society, in the current context of rapid climate changes.
There is a new contribution to the Polar Prediction Matters dialogue platform hosted by the Helmholtz Association. In this new article, Tanja Joona who is senior researcher at the Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland, provides a personal report on the everyday life in Finnish Lapland (see also here).
Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another new record high, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). There is no sign of a reversal in this trend, which is driving long-term climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification and more extreme weather.
