Organizers of the Polar Weather and Climate Week 2016 announce a call for registration and abstracts for associated workshops and meetings.

Workshop registration and abstract submission deadline: 9 May 2016.

Polar Weather and Climate Week 2016 will include the following workshops:

International Workshop on Coupled Modeling of Polar Environments
4-5 June 2016
Organizers invite contributions on the use and development of fully coupled models in high northern and southern latitudes, including those based on the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport model (COAWST), the Regional Arctic System Model (RASM), and the Model Prediction Across Scales (MPAS). Organizers hope to attract broad interdisciplinary modeling participation from atmospheric scientists, physical oceanographers, sea ice specialists, land surface scientists, etc. The workshop goal is not only to discuss scientific advances but promote collaborative work.

The 11th Antarctic Meteorological Observation, Modeling & Forecasting Workshop
6-8 June 2016
This workshop will bring together investigators with research and operational/logistical interests in Antarctic meteorology, forecasting, and related disciplines. The annual activities and status of Antarctic observing and modeling efforts will be addressed, and feedback and results from their user communities will be solicited. More broadly, this workshop will provide a forum for current results and ideas in Antarctic meteorology, numerical weather prediction, and weather forecasting, from contributors around the world.

International Symposium on Atmospheric Boundary Layers in High Latitudes
9 June 2016
This symposium will focus on the atmospheric boundary layer over snow, ice, and water in high latitudes with the scientific focus from small to large scale processes that are responsible for control exchanges through the boundary layer. The symposium is intended to provide an interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers working in the areas of high-latitude experimental and theoretical studies of the stable and unstable boundary layers over land, ice, water and sea ice, including atmospheric chemistry.

Please note: The Year of Polar Prediction Southern Hemisphere (YOPP-SH) Planning Meeting will convene 6 June 2016.
