The polar prediction problem is inherently multidisciplinary and requires cooperation across a wide community. Thus, an international group of agencies specifically designed a 10-day training course to bring together a wide group of students and lecturers to cover important topics related to polar prediction.
Topics included satellite and conventional observation techniques; numerical modeling of the polar atmosphere, sea ice, and ocean; and data assimilation and model evaluation. The course included an innovative combination of theory lectures, practical exercises, and fieldwork, as well as a dedicated science communication program, each of which forms a crucial pillar of the prediction problem.
