Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission is now open for the YOPP Arctic Science Workshop to be held from 14 to 16 January in Finland, Helsinki.

The workshop is jointly organized by the Polar Prediction Project and its International Coordination Office, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Finnish Meteorological Institute who is hosting the meeting. It will bring together YOPP scientists to discuss first results from the Arctic Special Observing Periods, providing a vivid forum for exchange and networking. We invite studies on coupled atmospheric, ocean, sea ice, and land processes in the context of latest Arctic observations, modelling and prediction efforts including their benefits to society on time scales from hours to seasonal. 

Confirmed invited speakers are: Elizabeth C. Hunke, Jim Doyle, Machiel Lamers, John Marshall,
Pierre Rampal, Ian Renfrew, Greg C. Smith, Gunilla Svensson

Abstracts can be submitted until 3 September 2018 following this link.

First Circular

From January 14-16, 2019, the Arctic Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) Science Workshop will take place at the Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki, Finland. It will be jointly organized by the Polar Prediction Project and its International Coordination Office (ICO), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).

The workshop will bring together YOPP scientists to present and discuss the first results from the Arctic Special Observing Periods in winter and summer 2018, providing a vivid forum for exchange, networking, and interaction. Studies of coupled atmospheric, ocean, sea ice, and land processes will be addressed to share feedback on the latest Arctic observations, modelling and prediction efforts including their benefits to society on time scales from hours to seasonal.
