NEW: Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory hosted a live stream of the Polar Prediction Workshop. A recording is available at: http://livestream.com/LDEO/events/5316296

The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Lamont) hosted a Workshop on Polar Predictability on 4-6 May 2016. This was the third annual workshop on this topic. The first was held in April 2014 in Boulder, Colorado and the second was in April 2015 in Reading, United Kingdom.

The 2016 workshop focused on:

  • Sources of polar predictability on sub-seasonal to inter-annual timescales
  • Sea ice prediction
  • Operational and research efforts

Forecast users and operational forecasters were encouraged to attend the workshop.

The meeting included a series of invited talks on the first day, followed by contributed talks and poster sessions.

Outcomes of the meeting will include recommendations for the Sea Ice Outlook and other activities related to polar prediction.

There was no charge for the workshop. Lunch, coffee, and food during breaks were provided.

Registration has been closed.

EXTENDED Deadline for abstract submissions was Friday, 11 March 2016.
