Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We would like to call your attention to the WWRP/WCRP/Bolin Centre Polar Prediction School that will be held at the Abisko Field Station in Arctic Sweden from 5-15 April 2016 (next year) sponsored by WWRP, WCRP, and the Bolin Center. The school is part of the WWRP Polar Prediction Project and the WCRP Polar Climate Predictability Initiative.

This course on Polar Prediction will provide training for 30 PhD and early career post-doctoral polar scientists, focusing on topics such as: polar mesoscale atmospheric processes; sea ice prediction, near term ensemble prediction, and seasonal-to-decadal climate variability and prediction in the polar regions. The program will combine lectures on key areas relevant for polar prediction and a number of field observation and modelling exercises to foster an interactive learning environment.

If you would like to apply for a place on the school, but did not fill out the Expression of Interest (EOI) after the 1st call in May, then please do so. Candidates for a full application will be selected from these EOI's. We are asking for people wishing to apply to this school to fill out the Expression of Interest form by 20th July. You can find the form here:

Limited travel support may be available, particularly for participants from developing countries.
