Summary

Organizers would like to call attention to the Polar Prediction School that will be held at the Abisko Field Station in Arctic Sweden from 5-15 April 2016 (next year). Sponsored by the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP), the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and the Bolin Center for Climate Research, the school is part of the WWRP Polar Prediction Project and the WCRP Polar Climate Predictability Initiative.

This course on Polar Prediction will provide training for 30 PhD and early career postdoctoral polar scientists, focusing on topics such as: polar mesoscale atmospheric processes; sea ice prediction; near term ensemble prediction; and seasonal-to-decadal climate variability and prediction in the polar regions. The program will combine lectures on key areas relevant for polar prediction and a number of field observation and modeling exercises to foster an interactive learning environment.

Organizers are asking for people interested in this school to fill out the Expression of Interest form by 15 May 2015. The form is available at: http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/wcrp/pcpi/meetings/abisko-pp-2016. Limited travel support may be available, particularly for participants from developing countries.

Interest form submission deadline: 15 May 2015.
