UPDATE: Call for Expressions of Interest Artificial Intelligence in the Arctic Working Group

Organizers invite expressions of interest (EOI) for a working group on artificial intelligence (AI) in the Arctic. The goal of the working group is to help streamline research efforts to some extent and create more opportunities for involvement.

Within this group, there will be topic-specific (e.g. AI for sea ice) and geographically-specific (e.g. AI in the Arctic) working groups formed. Organizers are still looking for people (from research, industry, government, etc.) to contribute.

If you are interested and have not done so already, fill out the online form as an Expression of Interest.

Polar Low Workshop 8-10 December 2021 - Call for abstracts

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.
