Polar Data Planning Summit, Boulder, Colorado USA; 22-24 May, 2018
A number of recent conferences, workshops and meetings have confirmed that there are many national, regional and local projects and programs that are active in polar data management and stewardship and that also have a mandate or desire to contribute to regional or international coordination of efforts and activities. Many of those initiatives have resources available and are making progress towards an envisioned connected, interoperable polar data system. The international polar data community is eager to improve cooperation and coordination of their efforts.

What: the Arctic Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) Science Workshop
When: January 14-16, 2019
Where: Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki, Finland.
Jointly organized by the Polar Prediction Project and its International Coordination Office (ICO), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), the workshop will bring together YOPP scientists to present and discuss the first results from the Arctic Special Observing Periods in winter and summer 2018, providing a vivid forum for exchange, networking, and interaction. Studies of atmospheric, ocean, sea ice, and land processes will be addressed to share feedback on the latest Arctic observations and modelling efforts on time scales from hours to seasonal.
More information on the workshop including session topics will be announced soon. Please direct any questions to the YOPP International Coordination Office. Click here for a PDF version of the first circular. More information on YOPP here.
