6th Polar Prediction Workshop 2019
From Wednesday 24 April 2019
To Friday 26 April 2019
Location Norman, Oklahoma, USA

The University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology and the Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies (CIMMS) organize the 6th Polar Prediction Workshop. The workshop will bring together diverse communities working on sea ice prediction, cold air outbreaks, models with varying temporal and spatial resolutions and various observing systems (radar, in-situ measurements, satellites) and those who use these products to produce weather, seasonal to subseasonal and weather forecasts. The social and socioeconomic impacts of Arctic weather and climate will also be discussed. The workshop will also focus on the current state of knowledge of processes in the Arctic, and impacts of both processes and forecasts. The workshop will also include a keynote address.

The workshop will begin on Wednesday morning and end Friday at noon. The keynote speaker will be Dr. John Walsh of the International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska.

Presentations will cover the topics of:

  • Polar predictability from weather to interannual time scales
  • Sea ice dynamics and prediction

  • Impact of the Arctic on lower latitudes Operational and research efforts

  • End user needs and capacity of scientific community to address them
Wednesday 24 April 2019
