SESSION M02: First Results from the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP)
Conveners: Amelie Kirchgaessner, Tom Bracegirdle, Annick Terpstra, and Holger Schmithusen

The climate system in the polar regions has changed rapidly over recent decades. Predictions show continued dramatic changes in all components of the polar climate system due to anthropogenic climate change drivers. In addition, ongoing increases in transportation and economic activity are leading to growing demand for improved regional weather and broader environmental prediction information in the polar regions. Significant improvements in environmental prediction capabilities for the polar regions, and beyond, are required to meet these demands. A major initiative towards achieving this is The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP), which is the flagship activity of Polar Prediction Project (PPP), and provides a period of coordinated intensive observing, modeling, verification, user-engagement, and education activities. For this session, conveners invite all contributions from the Year of Polar Prediction, particularly reports and first results from recent field campaigns in the Arctic and Antarctic. In line with the interdisciplinary nature of YOPP, convers encourage contributions that connect the atmosphere with the ocean, cryosphere, and biosphere.
