Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The 15th Polar Low Workshop focuses on polar lows and mesocyclones as well as mesoscale weather extremes in both hemispheres. This includes e.g. mesoscale weather phenomena such as katabatic winds, tip jets, boundary layer fronts, and cold air outbreaks in polar regions. Contributions of experimental, climatological, theoretical, modeling and remote sensing studies are welcome. The workshop is organized by the Polar Lows Working Group (PLWG) and is also part of the activities of the IASC (International Arctic Science Committee) Atmosphere Working Group. The 15th Polar Low Workshop will be hosted by the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology in Moscow. 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be conducted in a hybrid format. Dependent on the feasibility of travel, the in-person part will take place in Moscow at the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology. Please indicate in your abstract submission if you intend to participate in person or remotely. 

Please submit your abstract by 30 September 2021 by email to: plwg2021 [AT] sail [DOT] msk [DOT] ru 

The workshop will not have a registration fee! If you would like to apply for early career scientist travel support, please mention this in your abstract submission. 

We hope to see you online or in-person in Moscow in December 2021!
