Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to this session at the upcoming IUGG General Assembly 2019 in Montreal, 8-18 July 2019:

M02 - First Results from the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP).

You can find the full session description and a link to the conference webpage below. The deadline for abstract submissions is 18 February 2019.

We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!

Kind regards from the convenors,

Amélie Kirchgaessner, Tom Bracegirdle, Annick Terpstra, Holger Schmithüsen



The climate system in the Polar Regions has changed rapidly over recent decades. Predictions show continued dramatic changes in all components of the polar climate system due to anthropogenic climate change drivers. In addition, ongoing increases in transportation and economic activity are leading to growing demand for improved regional weather and broader environmental prediction information in the Polar Regions.

Significant improvements in environmental prediction capabilities for the Polar Regions, and beyond, are required to meet these demands. A major initiative towards achieving this is The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP), which is the flagship activity of Polar Prediction Project (PPP). It provides a period of coordinated intensive observing, modelling, verification, user-engagement and education activities.

For this session we invite all contributions from the Year of Polar Prediction, particularly reports and first results from recent field campaigns in the Arctic and Antarctic. In line with the interdisciplinary nature of YOPP we encourage contributions that connect the atmosphere with the ocean, cryosphere and biosphere.
