We are pleased to invite you to the 5th Polar Prediction Workshop. The workshop will take place at the Agora Hydro-Quebec from 7-9 May 2018.
As in previous editions, the workshop will focus on:
- Polar predictability from subseasonnal to interannual timescales
- Sea ice prediction
- Operational and research efforts
- End user needs and the capacity of the scientific community to address them
In addition, reviews for the Sea Ice Outlook project and other initiatives related to polar predictions will be discussed. We also propose a new activity for 2018. An important outcome of the Workshop will be a consensus forecast statement synthesizing predictions of (i) September mean Arctic sea ice extent, and (ii) sea ice conditions during the Arctic shipping season for key regions plus the Northwest Passage and Northern Sea Route shipping corridors.
Participants are invited to contribute to any or all of these forecasts and are encouraged to highlight these predictions in their presentations. More information on how to submit a forecast will be provided to interested participants.
Operational forecasters and forecast users are warmly invited to participate.
The registration and abstract submission deadline has been extended to April 13, 2018.
