Dear Colleagues (apologies for any cross-posting),

We would like to invite submission of abstracts to our session "Clouds 
and precipitation in the Polar Regions: sources, processes and 
impacts"at the 2018 EGU General Assembly (Vienna, 8‒13 April 2018): 

This session aims at bringing together researchers using observational 
(in-situ, aircraft, ground-based and satellite-based remote sensing) 
and/or modeling approaches to improve our understanding of polar 
tropospheric clouds, precipitation and related mechanisms. Contributions 
are invited on various relevant processes including drivers of the cloud 
microphysics at high latitudes, sources of cloud nuclei both at local 
and long range, linkages of polar clouds/precipitation to the moisture 
sources and transports, relationship to the large-scale and mesoscale 
atmospheric dynamics (including teleconnections), as well as the effects 
that the clouds/precipitation in the polar regions have on the polar and 
global climate system, surface mass balance and sea ice. Papers 
including new methodologies specific to polar regions are encouraged, 
such as improving polar cloud/precipitation parameterizations in 
atmospheric models and advancing observations of polar clouds and 
precipitation. This year we would like to emphasize observational and 
modeling activities planned within the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP, 
www.polarprediction.net <http://www.polarprediction.net>) and encourage 
related contributions.

Young scientist/student presentations are especially encouraged and we 
will reserve several oral units for such papers in our session.

The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday, January 10th 2018 

The deadline for application for financial support is Friday, December 
1st 2017.


Please forward this announcement to anyone who may have interest in the 
session. We look forward to receiving your contribution and seeing you 
in Vienna.

On behalf of the conveners,


Conveners: Irina Gorodetskaya, Tom Lachlan-Cope , Nicole van Lipzig , 
Manfred Wendisch
