Arctic Change and Its Influence on Mid-Latitude Climate and Weather - Registration now open February 1-3, 2017 Washington, DC
The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.
The deadline to apply and submit an abstract is August 31.
