APECS-WWRP-Polar Prediction Project Webinar Series - Part 1: Polar Environment Prediction
Professor Dr. Thomas Jung

The first webinar in this series on 2 March with the title "Polar Weather Prediction" introduced Professor Dr. Thomas Jung, a polar meteorologist, who is leading international efforts to improve polar weather and climate prediction. Increased economic, transportation and research activities in polar regions are leading to more demands for sustained and improved availability of predictive weather and climate information to support decision-making. It is argued, however, that partly as a result of a strong emphasis of previous international efforts on lower and middle latitudes, many gaps in weather, sub-seasonal and seasonal forecasting in polar regions hamper reliable decision making in the Arctic, Antarctic and beyond. Possible ways forward in advancing predictive capacity in polar regions were outlined.
