POLAR PREDICTION PROJECT

The Polar Prediction Project (PPP) is a 10-year (2013–2022) endeavour of the World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) with the aim of promoting cooperative international research enabling development of improved weather and environmental prediction services for the polar regions, on time scales from hours to seasonal.

YEAR OF POLAR PREDICTION

The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) is the flagship activity of PPP with the aim of enabling a significant improvement in environmental prediction capabilities for the polar regions and beyond, by coordinating a period of intensive observing, modelling, verification, user-engagement and education activities.

The Year of Polar Prediction is composed of three phases with the core phase taking place during the period May 2017 to June 2019.

YOPP Data Portal

The YOPP Data Portal at yopp.met.no harvests data sets generated as part of the Year of Polar Prediction from various data archives making them visible through the portal.

PolarPrediction Mailing List

Our PolarPrediction Mailing List (polarprediction@climate-cryosphere.org) is a mailing list for anyone interested in polar weather and climate predictability and prediction. The list is maintained by CliC and PPP. Subscriber can send anything relevant – including, but not limited to, upcoming events, recent papers, questions, ideas, etc. To subscribe/unsubscribe, please send an e-mail indicating your current affiliation to office@polarprediction.net.
