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 https://applicate.met.no/.
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).
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.
