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.

The Norwegian project Alertness aims to develop world-leading, reliable and accurate Arctic weather forecasts in support of maritime operations, business and society. PhD student Matilda Hallerstig is one of the researchers in the YOPP-endorsed project Alertness. In her article published on the Alertness project website, the scientist explains what is driving her to contribute to improving Arctic weather predictions.
