Polar Prediction School 2018

Date: 17 April 2018 - 27 April 2018
Location: Abisko Scientific Research Station in Sweden

The course will include a combination of polar weather and climate theory lectures with exercises on modelling and field meteorology 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 Arctic observations. Here participants can begin to develop a sense for the environment they are studying.

Application deadline is 15 September 2017
