Dynamics of Atmosphere-Ice-Ocean Interactions in the High-Latitudes

Event Type: 
Conferences and Workshops
When: 
23 March 2015 to 27 March 2015
Where: 
Rosendal, Norway

The goal of this workshop is to summarize our fundamental understanding and description of small-scale processes in the coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice climate system at high latitudes in order to assess and reduce bias and uncertainties in weather prediction and climate models.

The workshop will be limited to ca. 90 participants. Limited travel funding will be available to support a selection of early career scientists (Post-docs within 5 years of PhD and PhD students).

Conference registration fees are covered by the sponsors. Special hotel rate and full board (per night): 1550,00 (single) / 1250,00 (double) NOK.

Session themes and invited speakers:

  1. The Polar Climate: large scale circulation and interaction with mid-latitudes
    Jennifer Francis, James Screen, Sharon Stammerjohn
  2. The Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean-Ice System: current understanding and processes
    John Cassano, Chris Fairall, Andrew Roberts, Michael Tjernström, Timo Vihma
  3. Extreme Events in the Polar Regions: dynamics and characteristics
    Günther Heinemann, Ian Renfrew, Thomas Spengler
  4. Polar Predictability: state of the art and challenges ahead
