INTERACT Partner APECSAssociation of Polar Early Career Scientists.... More, together with other partners, will be organizing the Polar Prediction School 2018 on weather and climateThe average weather we would expect over a long period of time (seasons, years, decades). Climate varies from place-to-place across the Earth. Climate is determined by long-term (over at least... More prediction in the polar regions from 17 – 27 April 2018 at the INTERACT Partner station Abisko Scientific Research Station in Sweden.

The course will include a combination of polar weather and climateThe average weather we would expect over a long period of time (seasons, years, decades). Climate varies from place-to-place across the Earth. Climate is determined by long-term (over at least... More theory lectures with exercises on modelling and field meteorologyThe scientific study of the atmosphere and its phenomena, especially in relation to weather and weather forecasting.... More techniques as well as soft skill training. Each of these components forms a crucial pillar of the prediction problem, and the motivation for combining these is to provide participants with a complete overview of the components required to understand and predict polar weather.

The Polar Prediction School 2018 will be open for 30 early career researchers (focus on advanced graduate students, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers) from around the world. An international set up instructors will be teaching the sessions. The course will be run at Abisko Scientific Research Station in Sweden where the instructional facilities are conveniently located in an environment well suited to ArcticDefinitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More observations. Here participants can begin to develop a sense for the environment they are studying.
