Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Massive changes are occurring in the Arctic – retreating sea-ice, warming oceans, and a warming atmosphere – which have the potential to influence weather and climate well beyond the region itself. These profound transformations are projected to continue well into the future, opening up new opportunities, such as shorter shipping routes, but also exposing major risks, such as environmental hazards associated with increased activity in the Arctic. The growing interest and infrastructure in the Arctic means there is a strong need for improved weather and climate predictions on a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. The APPLICATE (Advanced Prediction in Polar regions and beyond: modelling, observing system design and LInkages associated with a Changing Arctic climaTE) project aims to improve weather and climate predictions for the Arctic and surrounding regions by bringing together a multinational and multidisciplinary consortium to advance our capability to predict weather and climate in the Arctic and beyond.

As part of this project, which is funded through the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, APECS organised a series of webinars focused on topics related to APPLICATE. These webinars can be found below and in our past webinars database, while more information about APECS' contribution to APPLICATE can be found on the project page
