Sea Ice Edge Comparison

Although the summertime minimum for the Arctic sea-ice extent has come and gone, and the freezing season has begun again, sea-ice growth is nevertheless at a historical low...

It is common sense that model biases in ocean models are attributed to insufficient spatial resolution and shortcomings in parameterization, which need to be improved...

Case Study risk management

The APPLICATE project releases its second case study that describes an extreme precipitation event that occurred in Svalbard in November 2016...

Irina Sandu

Irina Sandu is leading the Physical Process Team at the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Her work seeks to improve the representation of turbulence and of surface drag and its impacts on the large-scale atmospheric...

The Sea Ice Prediction Network South (SIPN South) is inviting contributors to participate to the third coordinated sea ice prediction experiment in the...

Polar Low Workshop

Please be aware of the 15th Polar Low Workshop that will take place from 13 to 15 May 2020 in Moscow, Russia...

EVP diagram

In order to study the movement of sea-ice, modellers usually use so-called elastic-viscous-plastic (EVP) algorithm. However, this algorithm is too slow to obtain realistic sea ice distribution...

Rym Msadek

Rym Msadek is a CNRS research scientist at the European Center for Research and advanced Training in Scientific Computation (CERFACS). Her research focuses on the role of the ocean and sea ice in climate variability and predictability on time scales of seasons to decades...

Despite important progress in prediction skills over the last decade, current Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) systems still fail to meet user requirements with larger forecast errors in the Arctic than for the mid-latitudes...

François Massonnet

François Massonnet is working as a F.R.S.-FNRS Research Associate at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain). His research focuses on the use and assessment of climate general circulation models for prediction at time scales from months to decades...
