APECS-WWRP-Polar Prediction Project Webinar Series - Part 1: Polar Weather Prediction
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Thomas Jung, AWI, Germany
2 March 2015 at 16 CET
Webinar ID: 120-183-315
The first webinar in this series on 2 March at 16 CET with the title "Polar Weather Prediction"will introduce 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 will be outlined. Many APECS members will be keenly interested in recent developments and future directions of this important area of research, so Professor Thomas Jung accepted an invitation to speak on this topic.
